University of Maryland Opens Search for Next Faculty Ombuds

The public research university in College Park, Maryland, is seeking its next Faculty Ombuds Officer—a half-time position. The search will fill a position held by Ellin K. Scholnick since September 2010. The Faculty Ombuds "serves as a neutral and impartial officer to provide confidential and informal assistance to faculty and administrators in resolving concerns related to their work... [serving] as a counselor, fact-finder, mediator, and negotiator, but not as an advocate for any party to a dispute." (UMD Faculty Affairs.)
