The Office of the Assistant Vice President for Student Development is the student advocate center for both campuses. Students needing assistance in resolving student problems and reviewing university policies and decisions should contact Student Affairs.
Staff in the Office of the Assistant Vice President for Student Development serve as the student ombudspersons. An ombudsperson is someone who investigates situations and assists in the resolution of complaints brought by a student against people at all levels within the university. The ombudsperson works to protect the rights and responsibilities of all parties involved.
Students should contact a university ombudsperson if they have a problem and don’t know how to proceed, feel they're "getting the run around," need information about university policies and procedures, or believe that they have been treated unfairly.
