About the Ombuds

The Stanford University Ombuds Office was officially established in 1970, and was one of the first offices of its kind among academic institutions in America. From its inception, the office was designed to be a neutral, confidential, and informal channel for resolving conflicts within the university.

NOTE: David Rasch has retired as University Ombuds. The Interim Ombuds is Rosan Gomperts, who can be reached at
