If you’re not sure how to approach a problem you’re having with the AMS, the AMS Ombuds can help you.. An Ombuds acts impartially, is independent of every administrative body (including the AMS and UBC), and provides confidential service.
The bread and butter of the Ombuds Office is helping students and AMS staff by providing conflict resolution services including:
Internal disputes can be a destructive, frustrating mess, and disputes among leadership teams can tank an organization. The Ombuds Office can help steer conflicts towards a productive, positive direction. As well, they can help you understand one another and reach a resolution that is practical, acceptable, and understood by everyone involved.
The Ombuds Office needs to really understand your situation in order to help you effectively. Please contact the ombudsperon via email or telephone to set up an appointment. You can also drop by the office during opening hours.
If you would like to begin a formal investigation, start by submitting the applicable report form.
