Ombuds to Students
The Ombuds to Students at Baylor University provides informal, neutral, and confidential dispute resolution services for students. Assistance is provided for interpersonal misunderstandings or disputes as well as to those with concerns about academic or administrative issues. Every attempt will be made to help individuals resolve concerns fairly and, if possible, informally.
Services are offered independently as a supplement to existing administrative or formal grievance procedures and have no formal decision-making authority. All parties involved will be treated fairly; neither side of a dispute will be advocated. In order to assure confidentiality, no acknowledgement of who has used the ombuds office will be given without permission of the student.
The Ombuds' Office deals with a wide range of conflicts, complaints, and disputes.
- Policies and procedures (campus, college/school, or departmental)
- Decisions or actions affecting groups or individuals
- Grading issues
- Interpersonal disputes
- Unfair treatment
