Standards of Practice

The practices and procedures of the Faculty Ombudsperson Office were developed in accordance with the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics of the International Ombudsman Association (IOA). Consistent with the IOA principles, the WVU Faculty Ombudsperson office functions independent of the formal organizational structure, operates confidentially, remains neutral, and limits the scope of its services to informal assistance with conflict management and resolution.
