The Office of the Ombudsperson for Students is independent of the Students’ Union and University’s administrative structure and considers all sides of an issue in an impartial and objective manner.
The Student Ombudsperson has no authority to order the change of policy or procedure but can recommend strategies and options for resolution.
It is important to note that the Student Ombudsperson does not act as an advocate for individual students, student groups, or the University.
