Dallas Community College District Consolidates Ombuds Offices

The Dallas County Community College District has appointed an Ombuds to serve a single problem-solving agent for the seven campus system. "Employees from several colleges have requested that we begin to consider offering ombudsman services at all DCCCD locations," Chancellor Wright Lassiter explained in a recent email. Dr. Bettie Tully, who has served as the El Centro Ombuds for 20 years, will fill the new position. The campus newspaper supports the consolidation, but points out that a centralized service will make outreach to other campuses crucial. (Eastfield News Article, Editorial.)
