CUPA-HR Panel Promotes Ombuds as Tool Against Bullying

At its latest conference, the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources was overwhelmed by the demand for a session on designing and implementing anti-bullying and faculty incivilities programs.
The panelists, including Toni Robinson, Ombuds at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said that an Ombuds program was one of the most effective tools to to prevent, identify and address bullying on campus. Robinson explained that Ombuds, “teach people how to say things in a better way, to get better results from people.” A summary of the panel presentation appears in the March 2010 issue of Women in Higher Education.
