The Office of the Ombud is independent, impartial, confidential and works outside of formal structures. In January 2011 the Office of the Ombud was established to help raise concerns, resolve disputes and promote equitable treatment within the university. As such, this facility is intended to enhance the general well-being of the UCT community.
