Here at the Office of the Student Ombudsman we help you with your problems by:
“A place where you can voice your concerns”
WHAT IS AN OMBUDSMAN?
Ombudsman is a neutral third party who assists in resolving problems, concerns and complaints through information means such as counseling , negotiations, and mediation. The word originated in Sweden in the early 1800’s when an office was created to investigate citizens’ complaints against the government. Many campuses, state agencies, and corporations have Ombudsman Offices.

if you feel trapped or lost in an endless maze.
