Academic Resources

If the conflict you are experiencing is with a faculty member about an academic matter, it may be useful for you to review the roles and responsibilities of faculty members as set forth in some or all of the following documents.


Confidentiality is a key characteristic of the Ombuds Office. The office does not divulge a client’s name or the nature of the issues being discussed without the client’s consent. With student permission, individuals whose help is necessary to resolve a specific problem may be contacted. The office acts only with your permission – except in the unusual situations of imminent risk of serious harm where there appears to be no responsible option except to act without permission.
