University of Texas to Open Search for First Staff Ombuds

UT President William Powers Jr. says that a search committee will begin the hiring process later this month for the University's first Staff Ombuds. An Ombuds for staff has been under consideration by Powers for nearly a year after the Staff Council set it as a top priority.

On his personal blog, Powers said, “I support the idea of having a staff ombudsperson for the same reasons that the University provides an ombudsperson to serve our students and faculty — it helps resolve conflict.” (Tower Talk; Austin Statesman.)
