Student Ambassador

CIS has a Student Ambassador/Ombudsperson (SA/O) who is a qualified undergraduate major in the 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 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. The SA/O has an office in the department (SERC 371), and the SA/O program coordinator is located in the CST Office of Student Services.
