Interview With Lewis & Clark Ombuds

Valerie White, the first Ombuds for Lewis & Clark College, has been working diligently to raise awareness of her office. Her efforts will ben enhanced by an interview in the campus newspaper. She said that people come to her with many kinds of situations:
Sometimes people just need someone to listen to them and be a mirror for them. Sometimes it’s more complicated, and I may have five people in my office, trying to get to the heart of a problem. Some individuals may have exhausted two or three resources without resolving their issue. Or, for some, they’re just curious. It’s normal to be nervous, but come anyway!
