OmbudsWhat is an Ombuds? Within the UVU community, misunderstandings and disagreements needing resolution occur. The UVU Ombuds is one who is familiar with campus policies, student's right and responsibilities, and can help find useful options within these guidelines. In order to serve as a mediator, as opposed to an advocate, the Ombuds neutrally and objectively listens to all problems. We hope you use this person as a resource for help in a variety of difficult situations.
