Neutral and Informal

It is important to note that the faculty ombuds is a neutral, informal source of assistance that is intended to complement and not supplant Boise State policies and procedures. The Office provides an extra option for you to use in complete confidence. It is intended to help you find and access–not to replace–formal resources, offices, policies and procedures as you need them.
