The federally chartered, private university in Washington, D.C has opened a search for its first Ombudsperson. The position reports directly to both the President of the University and the Chair of the Faculty Senate and will work with administrators, faculty, students and staff. The search follows a decision by the Howard University Board of Trustees in January 2011 approving a Faculty Senate recommendation to establish an Ombuds Office.
Applicants should have an advanced degree and/or relevant training, and be an active member of a professional association. No salary or closing date indicated. (HERC Job Posting; Howard Faculty Senate Ombuds Survey.)
