UC San Francisco Postpones Ombuds Office

The University of California San Francisco has recently approved a number of initiatives aimed at improving the diversity of staff and work climate. Excluded, for the present time, is an IOA-complaint Ombuds program similar to those at other UC campuses. As a result of anticipated state budget cuts, the Ombuds office first proposed in 1998 will be deferred indefinitely by the leading health center. Until then, the UCSF Work~Life Resource Center will continue operating as a "quasi-ombuds office" and ready for a transition. (UCSF Strategic Plan; Work~Life Resource Center; 1998 Strategic Plan.)
