Profile of Auburn University Ombuds

Kevin Coonrod, who has served as Auburn's Ombudsperson for the past two years, was interviewed by the campus newspaper this week.  Coonrood, who works with all of the university stakeholders, clearly enjoys the diversity of his work:

Coonrod said one of his favorite parts of his job is working on various different types of cases. 
“One of the reasons I love my work is the panoply of issues and people that come to my office,” Coonrod said. “For example, I have helped students understand academic honesty and academic grievance processes, the Code of Student Conduct, facilitated conversations with individuals and groups that wished to get along better or resolve a dispute and prepared students to have difficult but productive conversations with professors.”
