On January 21, 2014, UCF President John C. Hitt signed a Charter for the Ombuds Office that was established in 1994. The document asserts that the office (which is "a confidential, neutral, informal, and independent resource to the university community") complies with the Florida statute that requires each university to establish and maintain a student ombudsman (Fla. Stat. § 1006.51.).
The charter also states that the UCF Ombuds Office and the Ombuds Officer will comply with the IOA Standards of Practice. Although she is not a signatory to the document, Shreya Trivedi is the UCF Ombuds Officer. (UCF Ombuds Charter.)
