University of Kansas Ombuds Turns to Social Media to Boost Student Cases

KU Ombuds Kellie Harmon reports that the number of visitors to her office declined nearly 28% in 2014-15, mostly because student traffic fell 40%.  She believes that one explanation may be the lack of a social media presence and has therefore hired a graduate student assistant to do more outreach. "Hopefully when we count the numbers for this year next June, the numbers will reflect that," she said. (Daily Kansan.)
