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.

WHEN SHOULD YOU SEE A STUDENT OMBUDSMAN?

  • if you feel trapped or lost in an endless maze.
  • If you’re confused about university policy.
  • If you need someone to listen to your concern.
  • If you are seeking informal ways to resolve the issue you face.
  • If you are not sure where to go for help.
