UNLV is accepting applications from internal candidates for its first Ombuds. The position will serve as an impartial, confidential, independent, and informal conflict resolution resource for members of the campus community following IOA standards. UNLV has been considering an Ombuds Office since 2007, when a Faculty 2007 Task Force recommended the idea to the university president.
Applicants must be a current UNLV employee with a thorough understanding of its systems and policies, experience with conflict resolution, and a Master’s degree. The review of applications will begin on October 9. (UNLV Job Posting; Faculty Senate Retreat Minutes 10/12/10).
Factoid: UNLV is one of the few top-rated ADR graduate programs without an Ombuds Office.
