Call for Proposals for 2018 Summer Academic Ombuds Meeting

The Planning Committee for the 2018 Summer Academic Ombuds Meeting is seeking proposals. The annual meeting will be held on June 25-26, 2018 in Iowa City, Iowa. "This meeting provides an opportunity for Academic Ombuds to become better acquainted, to share concerns unique to our professional environments, and to support and learn from each other’s experiences in a relatively small and very collegial environment."

Prospective speakers are asked to submit a one- to two- paragraph description of their topic, the format of the talk, and the approximate length required (20 minutes to 1.5 hours). The Planning Committee strongly prefers interactive discussions and audience participation. Topics are limited to those relevant to Academic Ombuds, but can relate to anything in that realm, including:

  • Challenges facing Academic Ombuds 
  • Innovations relevant to Academic Ombuds 
  • Ombuds as change agents and/or leaders. 

Proposals should be submitted by email to cynthia-joyce@uiow.edu no later than March 1, 2018.
