The mission of the Ombudsman is to assist students with the resolution of problems to support retention and to foster respect across the campus community. The Office of the Ombudsman provides a safe, comfortable, and confidential environment for students to discuss their concerns or complaints outside formal channels. The Ombudsman cannot impose solutions, but identifies options and strategies for resolution.

Before contacting the Ombudsman, students should attempt to resolve their issues at the department or service center level. If a satisfactory resolution has not been obtained through these channels, the student should request assistance by filling out the Ombudsman Assistance Request form from the Hocking College website
