Job Posting: Indiana State

Indiana State University is seeking an associate dean of students/student ombudsman. (Chronicle Jobs.) Aside from the inherent conflict of interest in wearing two hats, the job description is inconsistent with the IOA Standards of Practice. According to ISU HR, the ombuds: "Serves as an advocate for students and student concerns," and "Represents student concerns to the Dean, Vice President and senior administration." And yet, the ISU ombuds website says: "The Ombuds Office is an independent, neutral, confidential and informal resource. It does not accept formal complaints or notice for ISU." No indication of salary; applications should be submitted by March 15, 2007. (Related post: Indiana State University Ombuds Dies.)
