East Carolina University Names Faculty/Staff Ombuds

John Howard has been named the University Ombuds for ECU— a half-time position that provides services to faculty, staff, and administrators and report administratively to the Chancellor's chief of staff. Howard will be the first permanent University Ombuds; Mickey A. Herrin Sr., has served in an interim capacity since April 2019.

Howard is a Teaching Associate Professor in Eastern Carolina's School of Communication. His research focuses on "the discourse of sermons written by women who are preachers." He graduated from Clemson University, and earned a MA at Penn State and PhD from ECU. (ECUComm Twitter; Faculty Bio.)
