Musical Chairs at the University of California
As 2006 drew to a close, there were a series of moves between ombuds offices within the UC system. Here's a recap: Jennifer Wolf left UCLA to become a university ombuds at UC Irvine; Andrea Briggs left UC Riverside to become the interim director at UC Santa Barbara; Kathy Canul left UC Irvine to become the director at UCLA; and Tom Kosakowski, previously at UCLA, became the interim director at UC Riverside. Meanwhile UC Berkeley is looking for another staff ombuds. (Prior Ombuds Blog posting.) No word on whether the music has stopped yet.
