What is the Role of the Ombudsperson?
An ombudsperson is an individual who is a resource for CEHD faculty, staff, and students. The ombudsperson is a trained individual who practices neutrality and whose main function is to provide confidential and informal assistance to the College community. The role of the CEHD ombudsperson is to provide faculty, staff, and students with a confidential and informal place to discuss work-related concerns, options, resources, and support.
What are appropriate issues for the Ombudsperson?
You have an issue or a concern you and others cannot resolve, or you would prefer not to address through formal channels.
You have a matter to explore “off the record”, or those for which you need informal consultation.
You have a problem, and are unsure with whom to speak or what options are available to address it.
You feel that a departmental policy, procedure, or regulation has been applied unfairly, or is itself unfair or ambiguous.
