Shawnee State University Restores Ombuds Program

The 4,300-student public university in southern Ohio has reopened the Ombuds program that was closed in 2003 due to lack of demand for services. John Whitaker, PhD, a popular Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics, has been named to the position.

The Shawnee Student Ombuds will assist students with any campus problem and is "confidential within legal limits, neutral, informative, and advisory in nature." (SSU Faculty Senate Minutes 11/13/03, Student Ombuds; SSU Chronicle.)
