MC's Ombuds, Julie Schwartz Weber, reports that her office served 115 individual employees in the last fiscal year -- about four percent of the total employee population. Of those visitors in 2016, 105 were full-time faculty, staff, and administrators. The total was down about 28% from the prior year, due to lower numbers of chairs and other administrators.
Weber reports on the status of prior recommendations made by the Ombuds office -- all of which have been adopted or implemented. In February 2016, the College also created a policy that confirms that the Ombuds will operate to IOA standards. (MC Ombuds 2016 Report.)
