Scales of Justice


Welcome to the Ombudsperson Home Page

The ombudsperson acts as a listening ear, conciliator, mediator, and resource for students with problems involving faculty, administrators, and other issues.
Responsibilities also include investigating grade disputes and other various complex issues.  

The ombudsperson does not disclose conversations in the Ombuds office.  Such conversations are confidential to the extent permitted by law.  The office is not an official office of notice to the college.  The Ombuds office is, instead, an informal office where individuals may explore options in confidence.
