California Caucus of College & University Ombuds

It’s not a conference. It’s a caucus.

Cal Caucus 2024

Piloting Stormy Seas to Safe Harbors

November 10-13, 2024

In the maritime world, a harbor pilot temporarily joins a vessel to guide it safely to its next port of call. They must know and consider all relevant conditions in the area, such as currents and hazards, to expertly navigate a ship to its destination. Just like harbor pilots, ombuds are trusted to help others traverse rough waters and unknown territory to a safer, better place. How can we continue to be the harbor pilots for our visitors and institutions while making sure that we stay afloat in stormy seas? Let Cal Caucus 2024 be your port of call to find refuge, recharge, and reconnect with each other.

Join us as we celebrate and build upon the rich history of Cal Caucus and the Ombuds profession, delve into the depths of effective ombuds work, explore how ombuds contribute to healthy and diverse organizational ecosystems, and support each other both personally and professionally.
