European Students' Union Calls for Ombuds in All Colleges and Universities

ESU, the umbrella organization of 45 national unions of students from 40 countries which represents almost 20 million students, has updated its universal statement of students' rights to include access to an Ombuds. The ESU Student Rights Charter now states that: “All students have the right to independent and impartial advice regarding their access and participation in Higher Education through institutional, regional and/or national Student Ombud or similar solutions.” The ESU considers the Student Rights Charter to be a comprehensive statement of fundamental students rights and important tool for its advocacy efforts.
