In cooperation with the Faculty Center, the Ombuds Office is proud to announce that it will celebrate Ombuds Day, October 14, 2021, with an exciting and educational activity that is open to all UNLV employees.

Ombuds Day is an annual day of recognition for the ombuds profession organized by the American Bar Association Section of Dispute Resolution. This year, the theme of Ombuds Day is "Exploring Options to Resolve Conflict Together." In keeping with this theme, UNLV's Ombuds, David G. Schwartz, will host an interactive role play exercise at the Faculty Center.

Prior to the 75-minute session, registrants will complete an online survey instrument that will provide into their preferred conflict style. With this knowledge in hand, participants will explore the impact that way different styles can exacerbate and de-escalate conflict by taking part in two role play sessions.

There will be two sessions held at the Faculty Center (BEH 235). One begins at 10:00 a.m., and the other at 2:30 p.m. 

Please keep an eye open for sign-up and registration information, which will be coming soon.
