Sig Stautland: Former Ombuds at San Diego State University

Siguard Stautland, who served as the University Ombudsman at SDSU in the late 1970's and early 1980's, passed away in May 2021. Stautland emigrated to the U.S. from Norway after visiting on a Fulbright scholarship. He joined the faculty at San Diego State in 1966 and taught there until his retirement in 1992. In 1982, he spoke out against a plan to cut funding to the Ombuds Office. During his tenure, he served as the Education Department Chair and Director of Special Programs. Stuatland was also an important leader in the Norwegian ex-pat community. (San Diego Valhall Viking; Daily Aztec.)
