Off the record
If you are looking for a safe, informal place to discuss a matter or surface a concern confidentially, please feel free to email or call the Ombuds Office at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at 401.863.6145 to make an appointment.
You may call outside of normal working hours and leave a message on our voice mail, anonymously if you wish. If you don't want to leave your name or number, leave some times that might work for you and I will try and be in the office then.
