John C. Keene, the outgoing University Ombudsman for UPenn, reported that the overall number of visitors to his office remained constant last year at 201. Most of these were related to employment procedures and nearly half o the visitors were staff. In addition, Keene said that the data indicated a marked increase in complainants from the School of Veterinary Medicine, which incurred a substantial reduction in financial support because of the state’s budget deficit.
