Half of the visitors seen were employees, 28% were students, 2% were post-docs, and 20% were not classified. Keene's report also introduced the new full-time Associate Ombuds, Michele Goldfarb, who served as director of the University's Women's center for the past 11 years. Previously, Goldfarb was an Assistant U.S. attorney and an assistant district attorney in Philadelphia. She is a member of the adjunct clinical faculty at the Law School and teaches mediation.
