Office of the Ombudsperson

"An Alternative Path for Problem-Solving"

MATC’s Office of the Ombudsperson (or Ombuds) is an alternate resource available for students to informally raise and address college-related concerns, issues or conflicts. The office is guided by the principles of confidentiality, independence and neutrality and provides a safe, off-the-record and non-judgmental space for problem-solving and conflict resolution.
