The public research university in Richmond has announced that it will conduct a national search for a new Ombuds to succeed Frank Baskind, who returned to the faculty at the end of the year. Baskind established the VCU Office of Ombuds Services for faculty and staff in 2008 and developed a charter that followed IOA standards.
VCU's Provost, Beverly J. Warren, said that the Ombuds also will be realigned. Instead of reporting to the Provost, the position will
report to the Vice President for Diversity and Equity. (VCU Provost Announcements.)
