According to multiple Twitter accounts, the public undergraduate university in Edmonton, Alberta, shuttered its Ombuds office on April 30. Cathryn Heslep served as the Student Ombudsperson, serving a population of about 20,000, since establishing the role in May 2016. She had worked at the school in a variety of positions for over three decades. MacEwan has not yet made an official announcement, but has been eliminating positions due to a budget crisis that predated the pandemic. (Twitter @MinnieSherret95, @almcm_; Edmonton Journal.)
Update 5/4/20: Cathryn writes: "Thanks to all of you for you kindness and sharing of expertise. I wish you all well. I do intend to look for ombuds work at some point. Connect with me through Twitter or LinkedIn."
