Auburn University Appoints Ombuds to Permanent Post

Auburn Provost Mary Ellen Mazey and the Executive Committee of the University Senate has reappointed Jim Wohl to a three-year term. Wohl recently completed a two-year trial as the university's first Ombuds for employees.

"The trial period was focused on establishing the office," Wohl said. "I'm eager to focus this next phase on building rapport and ensuring that employees all across campus know about the Ombuds Office and how it can be of assistance." He will continue to spend three-quarters of his time as Ombuds while he teaches in the veterinary curriculum and a mediation course. Wohl presented a session on preventative Ombudsing at the IOA conference last April.  (Wire Eagle.)
