Profile of UC Riverside Ombuds Gets Some Facts Right, Some Wrong

Earlier this year, the University of California appointed Indu Sen as its Campus Ombudsperson. She is profiled in the current faculty and staff newsletter, but there are some significant misstatements. The profile accurately states that Sen is a 1997 graduate of UCR and earned her law degree in 2000 from the University of San Diego. It is also true that Sen will earn her Masters in dispute resolution from Pepperdine University later this year. On the other hand, the article says that Sen takes over the position because the former Ombuds, Andrea Briggs, left to serve as the president of the University and College Ombudsman Association (UCOA). In addition, the article says that the UCR Ombuds Office is located in a cottage it vacated more than two years ago. (Inside UCR.)
