Ithaca College Announces Faculty Ombuds Team

On July 1, 2023, three faculty will reestablish an Ombuds program for the private liberal arts college in central New York. Over the past few years, Ithaca had considered a couple of different models for its Ombuds program and eventually settled on a team that would provide services exclusively to faculty. The three new Ombuds will be Jack Wang from the Writing Department, Dan Breen from the English Department, and Kathleen Mulligan from the Theatre Performance Department. An announcement from Ithaca's Provost explained that, "This team of faculty will serve as confidential, approachable, impartial/neutral listeners and resources for faculty members, helping to mediate conflicts, provide feedback, suggesting referrals to other resources as needed and fostering respectful, inclusive, and ethical behavior and fair process."
