Legal Statutes

Ombudsperson for Doctoral Students

In March 2011, the office of ombudsperson was created to support doctoral students and supervisors at the University of Heidelberg. The two ombudsmen appointed to the office will act as confidential and impartial advisors and mediators to whom doctoral students and their supervisors can turn in cases of conflict surrounding their doctoral projects.
 

The office of ombudsperson is currently held by the following professor:

  • Prof. Dr. Christiane von Stutterheim (Institut für Deutsch als Fremdsprachenphilologie - IDF)
     
  • Prof. em. Dr. Hans-Werner Wahl (senior professor, Netzwerk Alternsforschung - NAR; Psychologisches Institut)

Questions or problems can be submitted initially by email or post. The ombudsperson will then contact the applicant in order to clarify the problem and determine which offices or authorities could contribute to finding a solution. In some cases, a simple advising session may be sufficient to resolve the problem. In other cases, the ombudsperson will, with the permission of the applicant, arrange a mediation session with the other parties involved. The ombudsperson has the authority to make recommendations regarding further action. The implementation of the recommendations, however, is up to the parties involved.

The services of the office of ombudsperson are free of charge and can not be contested in a court of law or referred to another authority. The jurisdictions of the doctoral committees and the committee for the ensurance of good academic practice remain unaffected.
