New Ombuds at Florida Gulf Coast University

After a prolonged search to replace the founding Ombuds, Charles McKinney, FGCU has hired Helen Mamarchev to serve as Assistant to the President and University Ombudsman.

McKinney retired in 2009 after a FGCU attorney told trustees that McKinney's failures to document and investigate complaints forced the university to settle two discrimination complaints. Mamarchev is a career university administrator and most recently was Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. (UWM Post; FGCU Trustee Minutes.)
