The University Ombudsman provides a forum for students to discuss and identify options to resolve student issues with faculty, staff, departments, or programs. The Ombudsman helps students who have encountered problems or conflicts within the University, particularly problems not being adequately addressed through normal channels, or which processes and procedures seem incapable of, or are causing an inordinate delay in resolving. The Ombudsman may resolve problems through various methods, including making inquiries or referrals to the appropriate University department for review.

Notice: Emailing the Ombudsman creates a public record and comprises confidentiality. Communication with the Ombudsman does not constitute official notice to FIU of any complaint or grievance. The Ombudsman will not guarantee confidentiality under the following conditions: a crime is witnessed or reported; there appears to be imminent harm to self or others; or matters involving minors.
