The student advocate investigates cases, ex officio or following a student’s report, and mediates with the institution’s competent bodies for their resolution. It can request from the services of the institution any information, document or other evidence on the case, examine persons, perform an autopsy and order an expert opinion. If he/she finds that in a specific case the law is not respected, that maladministration is observed or that the proper functioning of the institution is disturbed, he draws up a conclusion which he informs the professor concerned or the competent administrative department and the student who submitted the report, and mediates in any appropriate way to resolve the problem. The student’s advocate may, by his act, place in the file a report that is considered clearly vague, unfounded or unsupported, while in the event that he considers that there are indications of a disciplinary offense, he forwards the case to the competent disciplinary body. The findings of the student’s advocate, as well as a report with his annual activities, are published on the institution’s website, subject to the provisions of Law 2472/1997 (A ́ 50), as applicable.
