LSU Ombuds Office Faces Elimination Under 2011-12 Budget

Louisiana State University has outlined $46 million in possible budget reductions for the 2011-12 fiscal year in anticipation of severe cuts to higher education. A committee divided campus units into three categories and the Ombuds Office is in the first category targeted for cutbacks.

The proposal would eliminate the halftime Ombuds position that was established in 2006. Kirsten Schwehm is the LSU Ombuds and helped organized the most recent IOA conference in New Orleans. (LSU Plan Announcement and Level 1 Cuts; WAFB News.)
