Kent State University Appoints Faculty Ombuds, Adopts Charter

After an 11-month search, Shannon Driscoll was selected as the first Faculty Ombuds for the public research university in Ohio. She joins an existing Student Ombuds, Amy Quillin, and will serve the university's 2,700 faculty members. Kent State also adopted a charter for the program. According to the independent campus newspaper, Kent Wired, the Ombuds will be required to report Title IX matters.

Driscoll comes to the position from Cleveland State University, where she had been a researcher for two and a half years. Her 20 years of professional experience includes a variety of legal, mediation, and administrative work. Driscoll graduated from the University of Dayton and earned a JD at the University of New Mexico and an MS from Cleveland State University. (Kent Wired; LinkedIn.)
