UVU's Ombudsman and Coordinator of Conflict Resolution, Talatou Abdoulaye, was recently interviewed by the campus newspaper. He sought to reassure students who may be afraid of reaching out to his office because he works at the university and/or don’t think he can help them. He that he shreds all case materials at the end of every semester, to illustrate his confidentiality and informality.
Abdoulaye, who was appointed just last year, also said that he hopes to begin an internships next fall for students interested in mediation. (UVU Review.)
