Update: University of Missouri, Kansas City Opens Search for Faculty Ombuds

UMKC is conducting an internal search for its first Faculty Ombuds. The part-time position works only with faculty and reports to the Provost for a two-year term. The job description generally follows IOA best practices, with one significant exception:
"When called upon by the provost, the Ombudsperson will conduct informal reviews and will recommend appropriate action." An earlier report that the position would be limited to matters from UMKC's School of Arts & Sciences appears to have been incorrect or the scope of the position has been increased.
