Long-Time Ombuds at Carleton University Retires

Jim Kennelly, who has served as the Ombudsperson at the public university in Ottawa, Ontario for 42 years, will retire in the next few weeks. Carleton will host a reception on March 5, 2020 to honor Kennelly, who has worked at the university since he graduated in 1975.

After earning a BS in Sociology, Kennelly worked as a Co-ordinator of Student Services for three years what was known at the time as St. Patrick’s College. He then became the university’s first Ombudsperson in 1978, a role that Kennelly expanded into an office team that now serves Carleton’s more than 31,000 students. A search is underway for his successor. (Carleton Events.)
