Job Posting: University of North Carolina at Greensboro
The public research university in central North Carolina has revised its search for an Ombuds. An earlier search in the fall of 2021 for an "Ombudsman" was extended and then closed without a contract being awarded. The new search for a "University Ombudsperson" seeks a full-time employee. The new UNCG Ombuds will report to the Provost and provide services to faculty and staff. (The earlier RFP said the Ombuds would also serve students.) The job posting also indicates the potential for an additional part-time Ombuds staff and/or graduate assistants to be hired as services increase.
