In May 2020, Amy Sereday, CO-OP, was appointed the first Staff Ombudsperson for the private liberal arts college in New London. Since then, her mandate has expanded to include faculty issues. (The former Faculty Ombuds, David Dorfman, Christine Chung, and Simon Feldman are now designated as Faculty Intermediaries and are still part of the office.) This week Sereday published the Charter for her office, which ensures compliance with IOA standards. She also released her first Annual Report, which covers the 68 visitors who consulted her during the 2020-21 academic year. (Connecticut College Ombuds.)
