Ombuds Office Explained At Boston University
(BU.edu) Acting on a report by the Faculty Council on Diversity and Inclusion, BU has created a new and critical position, which was filled in September. President Robert A. Brown introduced the new member of the community at this year’s University Management Conference.
“One of the most important recommendations of (the faculty council) was the establishment of the Ombuds office as a new mechanism to help faculty, staff, and students bring forward issues that are negatively affecting life within the workplace of our University,” Brown told the crowd at the George Sherman Union’s Metcalf Ballroom on October 26.
I think this is a good measure by the school from a proactive standpoint. Many times people do not use an Ombuds office I think in Universities is because they don’t know about it!
