ISU Extension has uploaded a video of Ombuds Officer Elaine Newell introducing herself at a new staff orientation. Newell noted that she has completed exactly four years of service in the role. She summarizes her background (from party chef to litigation attorney) and explains how the Ombuds Office is differs from other resources on the campus. She starts by stressing the independence of her role. (ISU Extension Vimeo.)
