Retiring Ombuds at University of Toronto Submits 2021 Annual Report

As one of her final administrative duties before retiring, Ombuds Ellen Hodnett tendered her annual report to the U of T's Governing Council. She reported handling 331 new cases in 2020-21, a slight decline from the prior academic year. In general, the concerns brought to the Office were comparable to those in prior years, with the exception of 29 cases related to Covid-19, which necessitated the creation of a new data category. Hodenett described consistent reports from graduate and undergraduate students of bullying and harassment by teaching staff and similar reports from teaching and administrative staff about their superiors.
