Ombuds Program


Penn State and Centre County offer a number of confidential and non-confidential resources for faculty, staff, and students seeking assistance with concerns, including state-mandated reporting. We encourage you to contact an Eberly ombuds, who can work with you as you utilize these resources and potentially point you to additional resources.
