Faculty Ombuds at University of Texas Reports Continued Growth in Cases

Mary Steinhardt, the University Faculty Ombudsperson at UT Austin, said that 94 visitors (88 faculty and 6 post-docs) from 12 different colleges or schools contacted her for help or advice during the academic year 2012-13. In her annual report to the Faculty Council, she also noted that her office has seen an increase in the number of visitors over the last six years from approximately 40 per year to the current number. 

According to the report, Steinhardt spends about 10-15 hours per week on Ombuds activities.  (UT Ombuds 2012-13 Report.)
