American Philosophical Association Ombuds Reports No Cases

In 2008, the APA established an Ombudsperson for Nondiscrimination to serve as a resource for its 9,500 members with complaints of discrimination. Laurie Shrage, PhD, a Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Women's Studies Department at Florida International University was appointed to a three-year term. However, according to one blogger, Shrage has yet to receive a single concern as the APA Ombuds. The anonymous blogger speculates that APA members simply aren't aware of know there is an Ombuds.
