How can the Ombuds Office help me?
An ombudsperson helps resolve problems or complaints within Lehigh University and helps achieve equitable settlements. The ombudsperson is also a source of confidential advice.
Any member of the Lehigh community -- students, faculty, and staff -- and others who may bring a complaint against the university. The Ombuds Office may also investigate problems and grievances on its own initiative.
The Ombuds Office of Lehigh University has access to a wealth of knowledge and resources that can help you to work successfully to solve problems within and through Lehigh University's complex structure. It is our responsibility to make that knowledge and those resources available to the Lehigh community.
