Ombudspersons for members of the university

Ombudsperson for professors and academic employees

The University places two Ombudspersons at the academic employees’ disposal. Both work on a voluntary basis and independently and can refer contraventions of the Code of Ethics to the university's own ethics committee. They are the first point of contact for university members if there is a suspicion that a violation of the Code of Ethics has occurred. more
