Welcome to the Faculty Ombudsperson Office at the University of Missouri – Kansas City. This website is to explain the role of the Faculty Ombudsperson (or "ombudsman") and the services we offer. The goal of this office is to advocate for a fair, equitable, and respectful workplace through helping faculty productively resolve their workplace problems.
