Office of the Ombudsman

The Office of the Ombudsman provides a safe place to discuss complaints, concerns or problems. The Ombudsman acts as an independent, informal, impartial, and confidential resource. The intervention of the ombudsman may be requested by the student or faculty involved in the process. The office can assist both parties by:

  • Helping the student understand his or her rights.
  • Helping faculty with any questions that he or she may have relative to the student contesting the assigned grade.
  • Explaining or clarifying policies and procedures.
  • Advocating for a fair process.
