Student, Faculty & Administration Mediation

Explore Ombudsperson

An Ombudsperson acts as a listening ear for students at SMC. The ombudsperson helps to resolve conflicts, issues and/or concerns involving faculty, administrators, and other issues; this may include investigating grade disputes and other various complex issues. The Ombuds office is an informal officer where individuals may explore options in confidence.

The ombudsperson does not disclose conversations in the Ombuds office, as conversations are confidential to the extent permitted by law, and the ombudsperson does not serve as an official office of notice to the college.
