Ombudsman Solution Center

The mission of the Ombudsman Solution Center at Sinclair is to provide support, mediation, and advocacy for fair processes throughout the institution. The office works to analyze information gathered from student experiences in order to implement procedural changes into Sinclair’s culture.

The Ombudsman is here to help you!  "In light of current conditions, the Ombudsman can meet with you via Zoom!" Even though we are unable to meet face to face, I can schedule a video conference (Zoom) or a phone conference with you.  Please click on the button below and complete the Ombudsman Assistance Request Form and I will contact you to set up a meeting with you.

What does the Ombudsman do? How can the Ombudsman help me?

  • Provides services to students to encourage them to learn how to problem solve and operate effectively within the College environment.
  • Provides personal/life skills coaching to students.
  • Addresses legitimate concerns regarding customer service issues, communication disconnects, or the inability to access student services in a timely manner.
