The CHM Student Ombudsperson, as an informal resource, does not arbitrate, adjudicate, formally investigate or participate in any internal or external formal process. Services supplement but do not replace other resources at the College and University. The CHM Student Ombudsperson remains consistent with the MSRR ARTICLE 5 - ADJUDICATION OF CASES - 5.4. ADMINISTRATIVE RESOLUTION -5.4.2: If problems arise in the relationship between instructor and student, both should attempt to resolve them by informal, direct discussions. If the problems remain unsolved, the unit administrator and/or the Ombudsman should be consulted. If a problem is still unresolved, either individual may submit a grievance or complaint.
Report of sexual assault, discrimination, or harassment to the CHM Student Ombudsperson is not equivalent to a Complaint under Title IX or the University Polity on Sexual Harassment. Guidelines for Title IX reporting and University Policy on Sexual harassment and will be reviewed and followed as indicated with the students.
A report to the CHM Student Ombudsperson does not constitute Notice to the college or the University.
