Welcome

Burrowing OwlThe University is committed to providing the best possible environment for all of its students. We want to assure that all students of the University are served well in all situations. In this regard, the University established the role of Ombuds in 1990. The University Ombuds works to solve problems, to allay frustration, and to advise those requesting help, either before or after existing processes are used. The Ombuds functions independently and serves as a neutral problem-solver, has access to all University offices, records and personnel. The Ombuds provides information on processes, refers to appropriate offices, helps to develop options and facilitates mediation. The Ombuds can recommend policy or procedure changes.

*Please note that because of the confidential and informal nature of the Office of the University Ombuds, it is not considered an "office of notice" to the University.
