Lehigh Ombuds Explains Relationship to Complaint Processes

A panel of Lehigh University administrators discussed the university’s handling of disputes and complaints by students and faculty in a meeting Friday. Professor Vince Munley, the university ombudsman, explained that he deals with situations in which faculty members or students need someone of a neutral ground to help sort out a complaint. “The position of ombudsman was set up so the people would be treated fairly by ‘the crowd.’ I do not make a judgment of who’s right and who’s wrong. I’m neutral and I am not an officer of the university,” Munley said. (The Brown and White.)
