Hampshire College Creates Ombuds Office

In an email to faculty, Hampshire President Ralph Hexter announced that Carol Stewart would become the first Ombuds for the Amherst, MA, private liberal arts college. Stewart will be on campus 3.5 hours per week working from an office in the college library. Stewart is an experienced conflict management professional and is completing a Master's degree in public policy and public administration, with an emphasis on social justice education and non-profit management at the University of Massachusetts. She has worked with community-based mediation programs as a mediator, trainer, and administrator, most recently as director of mediation services at the LGBT Community Center in New York City. In addition to her appointment at Hampshire, Stewart continues to serve as the first-ever Ombuds for Mount Holyoke College.
