Portland State University Ombuds Ready for Peak Season

Sandy McDermott serves as the only Ombuds for the 24,000-student public university in Oregon. Since she serves the entire PSU community, McDermott is often the first to notice trends among the individuals who come to her for aid. A recent concern is an increasing number of students who self-identify as homeless. As she approaches the end of the calendar year, "peak season," McDermott is unable to accept walk-ins due to the high volume of cases. (PSU Daily Vanguard.)
