The Graduate School Ombudsman serves as a confidential, neutral, informal and independent resource for graduate student concerns and conflicts. The Ombudsman strives for impartiality, fairness and objectivity in the treatment of graduate students and the consideration of their issues. The Ombudsman advocates for fair and equitably administered processes, but does not advocate on behalf of the student.
Communications made to The Graduate School Ombudsman are not notice to the University. However, the Ombudsman may refer individuals to the appropriate place where formal notice to the University can be made. To ensure confidentiality, graduate students with concerns or conflicts should not email the Ombudsman; instead, call or arrange a visit.
