What is an Ombuds?
An ombudsperson is an independent, neutral third party who assists in resolving problems and concerns. Many campuses, state agencies, and corporations have ombuds offices.
Our office operates in adherence to standards created by the International Ombudsman’s Association, based on the Principles of Confidentiality, Neutrality, Independence, and Informality.
