2.4 Grievance Procedures, Disciplinary Process, and Jurisdiction

The Ombudsperson generally is not involved in the substance of formal appeal procedures, but may investigate alleged irregularities in the proceedings. The Ombudsperson may decline a case when judging intervention inappropriate. The Office of the Ombudsperson is independent of the University disciplinary process. The Ombudsperson may not take up conflicts with individuals, companies, or organizations falling outside the jurisdiction of The University of Iowa.
