Safe. Informal. Confidential.

The Office of the Ombuds serves as a resource for students regarding any complaint, grievance or appeal that may be academic or non-academic in nature. When working with our office, you will receive timely, objective and strategic information in a confidential manner to assist with the interpretation of policies and procedures. The role of the Ombuds is to ensure adherence to EMU policy, confirm due process as it relates to institutional protocol, assist with resolution and prevention of both academic and non-academic concerns, and to make appropriate data based recommendations to the Office of the Provost.

The Ombuds works directly with students, faculty, and staff, providing consultation related to university policies and procedures. It has established itself as an objective, non-biased operation that continues to work towards developing a fair and equitable university community.
