Central Michigan University Names Next Ombuds

CMU has selected Deborah Dodge as its University Ombudsperson. Previously, Erica Lynn Peters has been the only Ombuds for campus and served students; Dodge will serve all stakeholders following IOA standards. Introducing herself at a student government meeting earlier this week, Dodge said, “I truly care deeply about individual experiences within their organizations.”

Dodge comes to Central Michigan with 16 years of administrative experience at the University of South Dakota. As Assistant Dean for four years she managed the student rights responsibilities program, Title IX, and behavioral intervention team. Dodge graduated from Portland State University and earned a Master of Education at Vanderbilt University. (LinkedIn; CM Life.)
