Student Ambassadors/Ombudspersons

Each CST department has a Student Ambassador/Ombudsperson (SA/O) who is a qualified undergraduate major in that department. The SA/O is thoroughly familiar with requirements and curricula of the department, and can competently advise fellow students on the courses and faculty members of the department. He or she also has the information about career options for the department's graduates.

The SA/O is familiar with the College of Science and Technology Grievance Procedure and is the first person to consult in case of an academic grievance.

The SA/O will serve as a student-faculty "go-between," and attempt to resolve the grievance. A student must initiate this first stage of the academic grievance by submitting a letter detailing the grievance. (Learn more about the procedure's three stages.) A copy of the College of Science and Technology Grievance Procedure can be obtained from the SA/O. Each SA/O has an office in his or her department, and the SA/O program coordinator is located in the Office of Student Services.
