When Should I Contact the Ombudsman?

“When should I make an appointment to talk with the Ombudsman?”  This is a common question, without an easy answer.  Perhaps the shortest, and best, the answer is any time that feels right to the individual given the specifics of the situation.  I talk with students at every stage of a conflict, and there can be much gained from a conversation at any point along the way.

Examples of How I Can Help You

Here are some examples of issues students bring to me at the Office of the Ombudsman. These are common issues but in no way a definitive list. The reality is that students come with all sorts of issues and concerns, so ANY issue is a good one to come talk about.
