The private research university in Upstate New York is hiring its first University Ombuds. "This newly created position ... will be the lead staff person responsible for the Office of the University Ombuds which will include having the lead responsibility for directing the University’s new Ombuds Affiliates Program and meeting the training needs of its assigned members." Rochester's Ombuds program has gone through a couple of iterations in the last few years. There have been Ombuds serving academic areas (including Arts, Sciences & Engineering, School of Medicine, and School of Dentistry) and, more recently, a Staff Ombuds, Col Raimond, and Faculty Ombuds, John Barker. It is unclear how the new position will relate to other Ombuds or who will comprise the new Ombuds Affiliates.
