Our Ombuds Office is dedicated to excellence in the practice of Ombuds work. The IOA Code of Ethics provides a common set of professional ethical principles to which we adhere: Independence, Neutrality, Confidentiality, Informality and Commitment to Fairness.
The Student Ombuds Office at Brock is structured as a Tri-funded Model with Brock University Students’ Union (BUSU) funding 70%; Brock University funding 20% and the Graduate Students Associate (GSA) funding 10%. The Ombudsperson is a BUSU employee and is located directly within the BUSU offices. The Student Ombudsperson reports directly to the General Manager of the Organization.
The Ombuds Advisory Committee (OAC) meets bi-annually, or as required, to review issues or concerns related to the Ombuds Office/Service and where appropriate, makes recommendations to assist the Ombudsperson in improving the policies, procedures and protocols on campus.
