How We Work
Important Things You Should Know
The Office of the Ombudsperson for Students is a confidential office.
The ombudsperson is a neutral party that listens to concerns and complaints related to the university. The ombudsperson does not represent any one side.
Our Place in the University
The Ombuds Office does not replace other offices or functions in the university. It works collaboratively with faculty, administrators, and staff.
However, the ombudsperson has no authority to make or reverse a decision or a policy.
Help students, who feel they have exhausted all possible remedies, and to provide alternative methods to resolve their issues.
Identify and make recommendations to correct problems and issues that are uncovered through our work.
Ultimately to improve the university's service to students.
