Harry R. Hueston has been named the first Faculty Ombuds Officer for the public university in Canyon Texas. Hueston joined WTAMU's Department of Criminal Justice in 2000 and is an Associate Professor. The new position was through an agreement between the Faculty Senate and the Office of the President. The Ombuds follows IOA standards of practice and provides services to all faculty and the professional librarians.
Hueston graduated from Kent State University, earned masters degrees from Ohio State University, and a PhD from the University of Arizona. Prior to joining the WTAMU faculty, he was the Chief of Police at the University of Arizona and has worked for 30 years in law enforcement. Previously, WTAMU had only a Student Ombuds, a position that has been held by Eppie Wyckoff since 2010. (WTAMU Faculty Ombuds; Faculty Profile.)
