University of Wisconsin-Parkinson Appoints First Ombuds

Following an investigation into deficiencies in its Teacher Education Program, UW-Parkside has implemented several corrective actions including the creation of an Ombuds program for students. Emeritus professor Dr. Dwayne G. Olsen was named to the position, effective June 3, 2009. Olsen will also work with the Teacher Education Program to ensure all requirements for teacher licensure and program accreditation are met. Meanwhile, the UW-Parkside faculty continue to debate the merits of a faculty Ombuds for the entire university. (UW-Parkside News and Committee Minutes, 3/24/09; Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel Online.)
