The Office of Ombuds Services at the University of California Los Angeles will host an open house March 31 to celebrate more than four decades of service to the campus. An article in the staff and faculty newsletter profiles the office headed by Kathleen Canul and including Brenda Woods-Patin, Katy Kolodziejski, Thomas Griffin and Tom Kosakowski.
Canul said that staff use the Ombud's Office more than faculty, but when faculty do come in, their problems are often more entrenched. Among staff and students, women are more more frequent visitors. (UCLA Today.)
Alumni of the UCLA Ombuds Office are an impressive bunch and include Howard Gadlin (NIH), Sean Banks (Shell), Reese Ramos (Sandia NL), and Jennifer Moumneh (UC Irvine).
