University Corporation for Atmospheric Research to Consider Ombuds Program

Trustees for the nonprofit university consortium will take up the creation of an Ombuds program at its next meeting on October 12. According to the agenda for the meeting, UCAR trustees will be asked to approve an Ombuds Charter and nominees to fill the position. The organization began considering an Ombuds program as early as 1999, but there has been little progress until recently. Further details regarding the proposed program have not been made public. UCAR manages the National Center for Atmospheric Research and related programs for the geosciences community and has a total staff of about 1,500. (UCAR Board of Trustees Agenda, Oct. 12-13, 2009; UCAR Staff Announcement, 11/11/99.)
