Dean of Students Office, UMass

The Dean of Students Office has a strong commitment to fostering student development, particularly in the acquisition of personal values, which create a respect for individual difference, cultural diversity and equal opportunity. The staff strives to meet the varied needs of all students through advocacy program support, advising, and general counseling.

We pride ourselves on being an office where upon contact students and families will have an answer to their question, a solution to their problem, or an effective referral to the office or professional who can answer their question.

Ombuds Office, UMass

The Ombuds Office is available to all members of the University community to help resolve University-related conflicts impartially and without judging, rewarding, or punishing parties. We listen, ask questions and help you weigh your options. When appropriate we can offer informal mediation or facilitate communication.

The Ombuds Office is informal, meaning that your contact with us does not put the University "on notice." If you decide to pursue formal channels we can refer you to the appropriate office or procedure. We serve as a neutral "process manager" for academic grievances and charges of academic dishonesty by coordinating the associated hearing processes.
