John F. Kennedy University Opens Ombuds Office

The private university with four campuses in the California Bay Area, has unveiled an Ombuds program for students, employees and faculty. The website states that the JFKU Ombudsman, "is guided by the Standards of Practice and the Code of Ethics of the International Ombudsman Association."

An Ombuds program was identified as a high priority initiative by a JFKU diversity task force in 2009. The university's website does not identify who serves as the Ombuds. (JFKU Ombuds, JFKU Diversity Action Plan.)
