New Ombuds Program at Ontario College of Art & Design

Last week, the OCAD Students Union introduced its first Ombudsperson, Jody Nyasha Warner. Prior to her appointment, Warner was a reference librarian at nearby York University. She has a longstanding interest in, and commitment to, antiracist and anti-oppression politics. Warner co-founded the Race Equity Caucus for librarians and faculty at York, and has served on the board for the Centre for the Study of Black Cultures in Canada. She has written on the cultural importance of academic libraries, and also authored a children’s book, Viola Desmond Won't Be Budged, which will be published this summer.
