EKU's President, Michael Benson has endorsed a document that further defines the role of the Ombuds program founded last year. EKU Ombuds Joan Beck university explained that the document provides “a point of reference for how the work of conflict resolution gets done. It also advises faculty and staff what they can expect when calling on the ombud for assistance. It adopts the Standards of Practice of the International Ombudsman Association for this office, and expounds and limits those standards to create a fuller understanding of the role of the ombud in the organization.”
A copy of the Ombuds Charter has not yet been posted online. (EKU Stories.)
