Following the recommendation of its Ombudsperson, Ellen Hodnett, the University of Toronto’s Ombuds Office will expand its physical presence campuses at Mississauga and Scarborough. “Nothing takes the place, or offers the fundamental value, of face-to-face meetings,” says Hodnett, who is completing her initial three-year term at the end of June and has just been re-appointed for an additional one-year term.
The move is intended to build more awareness of the Ombuds, which has seen a steady growth in cases during Hodnett's tenure. (U of T News.)
