Recommendations are the rulings intended for specific university instances or authorities that are emitted when enough elements are gathered to proove the violation of an academic right, if the problem is not solved by the authority involved before or during the procedure. Because of this, nearly all the issues heard by the Office find a solution without a recommendation being needed, and this are issued on an exceptional basis.
The characteristics of the recommendations issued by it are bona fide and equity, both of which are the general characteristics of rulings issued by Ombudsman offices.
Recommendations are sent in writing and they include the conclusions and suggested actions to take, in order to reestablish the enjoyment of the violated right and the observance of the university’s legislation. The emission of recommendations finds its legal basis in article 9 fraction VIII of the Office’s Statute and in articles 4, 10 fraction V, and 27 of the Office’s Regulation.
