Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

22 Scopus citations


A survey of 308 students revealed that student-faculty conflict is wide-spread, with approximately one-third of all students reporting a conflict they have pursued. In assessing student knowledge of ombuds processes as an option to resolve conflicts, approximately half of all students had heard of the ombuds office at their institution but had limited understanding of the functions of the office, and virtually none of those surveyed had used the office.
