The private, Ivy League, research university in New York City has opened a search for a University Ombuds Officer. The position provides services to nearly 60,000 faculty, staff and students including: Dispute Resolution, Consultation and Referral; Upward Feedback on Policies, Procedures, and Climate; Community Outreach and Education; Supervision of Staff; and Ombuds Office Operations and Budget.
Applicants should have an advanced degree and experience in conflict resolution and mediation, and, if not already certified, apply to become a Certified Organizational Ombudsman Practitioner after one year of experience in the role. The search will fill a position vacated by Marsha Wagner, who is retiring this summer after serving as the Ombuds at Columbia since 1991. (Columbia Jobs, QuickFind=135315.)
