The term “Ombudsperson” comes from the Swedish word “Ombudsman,” which means “the one who listens to the people.” This role exists in governments and universities, promoting justice, human rights, and communication. At Zamorano, the Office of the Ombudsperson, established in 2006, serves as an independent and confidential channel for addressing academic and student life issues, mediating conflicts, and providing impartial guidance. Its function includes facilitating communication and informing the administration about issues affecting the institution.
Scope of the Office of Ombudsperson
The Office of Ombudsperson offers suggestions, warnings, reminders, and constructive criticism but does not have coercive, coercive, or jurisdictional power. Its primary function is to listen to and advise the student community, guiding them on their complaints and conflict resolution. The Ombudsperson’s authority is moral and ethical, limited to receiving complaints, advising, and recommending solutions, without the ability to take disciplinary action, revoke decisions, or circumvent institutional rules and policies.
