Laurie Mesibov, the Associate Ombuds at UNC Chapel Hill, passed away on March 31, 2021. She helped establish UNC's Ombuds Office in 2005 and continued to work there until sidelined by her recent illness which began just 19 months ago. Mesibov started working at UNC shortly after she earned her law degree there in 1984. She was a long-time faculty member at the Law School, where she specialized in public school law, and held a variety of other administrative and leadership positions in the university. Among other volunteer work in the Ombuds field, Mesibov was a member of the first editorial board of the Journal of IOA. Condolence messages may be sent to her family via the UNC Ombuds Office.
