Whitworth University Rejects Call for Ombuds

An ad hoc task force that studied gender issues at the private Christian liberal arts college in Spokane, Washington, has recommended a strategic plan to address subtle sexism on the campus. The study recommended appointing an ombudsperson to help people deal with conflict or go to when actions were perceived as hurtful as well as developing training/workshops dealing with conflict. Vice President Dale Soden said the school has chosen not to create that position specifically at this time. (The Whitworthian.)
