You can also use email; however, all email sent via the NC State system are public records and may be retained.  Do not use email for confidential communications. You can email me off campus if you prefer.


Due to covid and lease considerations the off campus faculty and staff ombuds office (112 Cox Ave., Ste. 212/213) is no longer in use. The ombuds is meeting via phone, virtual, email, and text and will provide in-person (with physical distancing and masking) as developments allow. On campus meeting locations that provide appropriate confidentiality and physical distancing are being identified for ombuds use and a potential on campus location is also under consideration. 

Contact the ombuds to determine what works best for you. 

Contacting the NC State Faculty & Staff Ombuds Office or the Faculty & Staff Ombuds is not notice to NC State of any issue, complaint, grievance or claim.
