Former UC Ombuds Heads to Iran

Andrea Briggs, who recently concluded a short tenure as interim ombuds at the University of California, Santa Barbara, is flying to Iran as part of a civilian diplomacy delegation organized by the international peace group, Fellowship of Reconciliation. Briggs will bring her considerable experience in intractable conflict to open informal, personal dialog where official communications have broken down. Briggs was the university ombuds at UC Riverside for 25 years and president of UCOA in 2003.

If you are interested in contributing to FOR or defraying the cost of Andrea's $4,000 trip, leave a comment and I will forward information.
