FREE Webinar: What General Counsel Need to Know about Ombuds

Tuesday, May 30 | 12 - 1:15 PM ET | 9 - 10:15 AM PT

More and more institutions of higher education are creating ombuds offices on campus. Their unique roles are sometimes not fully understood or effectively leveraged to complement formal resolution channels. Please join NACUA and cooperating organization, the International Ombuds Association, for a complimentary overview of the practice of organizational ombuds, including:

  • Discussion on the role of ombuds on campus,
  • How ombuds and general counsel can work together effectively, and
  • The role of campus ombuds in risk management at institutions of higher education.

This complimentary webinar, which will not offer CLE credit, will be a useful primer leading up to our Annual Conference session entitled “Embracing Conflict: Ombuds as Strategic Allies for Campus Counsel” (session 06B), which will feature a more in-depth discussion of how the Office of General Counsel can effectively interface with the institution’s Ombuds.


Who Should Attend?

This webinar will be of interest to in-house and outside counsel to colleges and universities, senior institutional leadership, and current ombuds at colleges and universities.

Special Registration for COVID-19

We recognize that due to COVID-19, many of you are working remotely and are not able to convene in the same ways you might have in the past to watch a NACUA webinar. In an effort to accommodate these unique circumstances, we have made an adjustment to our standard registration policy: As before, your webinar purchase entitles you to a campus or firm registration. Once you purchase this webinar, you will receive the access information via email 24-48 hours prior to the event. You may share this information with your campus counsel and other colleagues within your institution or organization, as you would if you were to invite your colleagues to watch the webinar together in a physical conference room. For example, a University System Office may have multiple campuses, each of which would purchase a registration. This does not permit registrants to share the access information with those outside of their campus or organization, whether NACUA members or not.

Please note that only NACUA members who register for the program will have post-event access to the recording and materials. If a NACUA member shared the link with you, you will only have access to the materials and presentation during the live program. Non-member registrants will NOT have post-event access to materials or the recording.
