Goldschmidt, said Thurer's lifelong history of service and advocacy for faculty members made him uniquely qualified to serve as the first Ombuds. Thurer was an undergraduate at Princeton University and then completed medical school and his residence at Columbia University. At the University of Miami, he has been an active member of the Faculty Senate and recently served as the Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs. (Miller School News; Thurer Profile.)
