Southern University Appoints First Ombuds

The private, historically black college in Baton Rouge, Louisiana created its first-ever Ombuds program last week. Southern University and A&M College Chancellor Kofi Lomotey said he approved the new office to assist students. D.J. Baker will fill the position on an interim basis earning $55,000 per year while a search is conducted. Baker obviously has the Chancellor's trust, having served as Lomotey's assistant. In addition, Baker was the interim Director of Residential Life for the Baton Rouge campus. He is a doctoral candidate at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. (Baton Rouge Advocate.)
