Alumni Candidate for Penn State Board Suggests Ombuds

Prompted by the recent controversy involving its football program and allegations of child abuse, thirty alumni have applied to run for three open positions on the Pennsylvania State University Board of Trustees. One of these alumni, Richard Marshall, wants the university to create an Ombuds for employees and others. Marshall is head of transformation services for AllianceBerstein, which hired its first Ombuds in 2004. Penn State currently has an Ombuds network for faculty issues headed by University Ombudsperson Deborah F. Atwater. (Philadelphia Inquirer.)
