Salisbury University's New Ombuds Program is Missing Important Pieces

The public university on the Eastern Shore of Maryland has created an office of Ombuds Services for faculty, staff, and students. According to a new website, the Salisbury Ombuds is confidential, independent, and impartial. However, no individual Ombuds are identified.

A representative for Salisbury said cases submitted electronically or by phone to an executive assistant in the president's office will referred to Ombuds who are already working in student affairs or institutional equity. He could not say whether any had received Ombuds training from IOA. Salisbury University is a member of the University System of Maryland and other campuses in the system have designated specific individuals to serve as Ombuds. (Salisbury Ombuds.)
