Ombuds at University of Oregon Reports Continued Case Growth in 2020

UO Ombudsperson Brett Harris said that her office assisted 622 visitors in the 2019-20 academic year, continuing a five-year trend of growth. The most significant change in visitors occurred in graduate student cases, which increased from 7.8% of total cases in 2018-19 to 14.9% last year. Harris believes the increase was possibly due to dedicated outreach efforts. Unsurprisingly, she also reported, "Cases related to job security, telework, safety of work environment, and climate related to civil rights concerns all increased compared with previous years."
The report was prepared by Harris and Ombuds Case Assistant, Keegan Cary, with contributions from Program Administrator, Becky Couch, and Associate Ombudsperson, Jenn Hudson. (UO Ombuds Annual Report 2020.)
