Two Ombuds programs debuted impressive website updates this week. The Office of Ombuds at the University of Hawai'i Manoa's new website features links to annual reports, campus resources, annual reports and a visitor survey. The site also collects an extensive set of tips and strategies for visitors from other experts, including other Ombuds. (UH Ombuds.) Similarly, the Ombuds Office at the MD Anderson Cancer Center significantly upgraded its website with information about its services and links to other resources. Many downloadable materials are graphical or tabular, such as an overview of "Resolution Pathways." (MDAnderson Ombuds.)
Although designed for their respective organizations, both of these websites offer important materials and inspiration for other Ombuds.
