Job Posting: San Mateo County Community College District

The community college system in California (just south of San Francisco County) seeks its first Ombudsperson. The new position will serve all constituents—including 45,000 students—across three campuses: Cañada College, College of San Mateo, and Skyline College. The SMCCCD Ombuds will be expected to develop an IOA-compliant program and will report to the district's Director of Equity. The position will be based at the College of San Mateo. It is expected that the position will make recommendations to expand the office and eventually supervise staff and student assistants. 

Applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree (or an equivalent combination of education and experience) and two years of relevant experience. A Master's degree is preferred. The salary range for the position is $105,696 to $133,884 per year and applications will be reviewed starting March 16, 2023. (SMCCCD Jobs; SMCCCD Board of Trustees Packet.)

  1. A news item says that the SMCCCD Board of Trustees "approved the new position of chief diversity officer/ombuds at an April 26 meeting," with a salary of $217,920 to $270,780. This development is both frustrating and confusing. https://almanacnews.com/news/2023/05/02/san-mateo-county-community-college-district-to-hire-chief-diversity-officerombuds
