University of West Georgia Ombuds Office Issues Annual Report

The Ombuds Office at UWG has released its second annual report showing that the new program continues to be a vital service for the campus. In the 14½-months ended June 30, 2010, the office handled 105 cases: 45% were administrators or staff; 12% were faculty; and 43% were students.

The UWG Ombuds office uses the IOA Uniform Reporting Categories and reported that the top issues were evaluative relationships, services/administrative issues, and peer and colleague relationships. The report also indicated that Bruce W. Lyon, who helped establish the office, had been replaced by John R. Fuller, a professor of criminology, in January, 2010. Patricia Pinkard continues to serves as Ombuds primarily for staff. (UWG 2010 Ombuds Report.)
