UC Denver Faculty Vote to Add Emeriti Ombuds

At an assembly earlier this week, University of Colorado Denver faculty agreed that it is a priority to add two part-time retired faculty members to serve in the university Ombuds office. Based on the experience of faculty at UCB, faculty are more likely to feel at ease going to a retired faculty member, said assembly Chair Roxanne Byrne. (Silver & Gold Record.)

Updated 11/6/08: Although assembly members recognized the university's need for financial belt-tightening, they argue that hiring additional Ombuds would help faculty members protect their rights and could ultimately save the university money by avoiding protracted legal fights. (Silver & Gold Record.)
