Emory University Creates Ombuds for Students

The private university in metropolitan Atlanta has appointed Sherry Ebrahimi to the newly-established position of Student Ombudsperson. In the new, part-time role, "Ebrahimi will be responsible for assisting students in achieving resolutions to their problems and concerns while ensuring their privacy." She also will continue in her current position as director of university conferences.

Ebrahimi has worked at Emory in a variety of position since 2002. She is an alumna of the university and earned her M.S. from Florida State in Higher Education Administration.  Faculty at Emory have also sought an Ombuds, but that proposal is still pending with the administration. (Emory Wheel.)
