Faculty Ombuds Cases Surge at University of South Carolina

University Ombudsperson Jim Augustine reports that he handled 55 cases in the 2011-12 academic year, up 22% from the 45 cases he handled in the prior year. Most of the cases involved "Evaluative Relationships" and "Career Progression and Development" -- as defined by the IOA Uniform Reporting Categories. The report also recapped Augustine's work in the six years since he established the Office of the University Ombudsman at USC. (USC Ombuds Annual Reports.)
