Dartmouth Appoints Interim Ombuds

Moving quickly in response to a task force recommendation, Dartmouth College President James Wright announced the creation of a College Ombuds Office and appointed long-time administrator Mary Childers to a temporary, part-time position as ombudsman. Childers will report directly to the College President and will "work outside the grievance procedures" presently under the jurisdiction of human resources and the Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action office. Childers previously directed the Dartmouth Women's Resource Center and Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action. (Dartmouth Online; prior Ombuds Blog post.)
