At its meeting on March 13, 2013, the OU Faculty Senate approved an advisory resolution supporting the creation of a permanent Ombuds program. The resolution recommended that Ombuds Office conform to IOA standards, report directly to the university president, and be established by the beginning of the 2013-14 academic year.
The resolution also noted that, "All of our comparator peer institutions have an Ombuds Office." (UO Senate Minutes and Resolution; UO Matters Blog.)
