In her report covering May 2007 through April 2008, Faculty Ombuds Flora A. Keshgegian, Ph.D., reported a 20% increase in visitors. The report also marked the end of a two-year pilot program initiated by Brown's President, Ruth J. Simmons, and the Faculty Executive Committee. After an evaluation and review last fall, the university decided to make the office permanent. A search for a permanent Ombuds is underway. (Brown Ombuds' Annual Reports.)
