Ombudperson Search Launched

Last month we launched a search for UTC’s first full-time ombudperson.  The new ombud will be charged with serving faculty as well as staff.

For those who may not be entirely familiar with such roles: the successful candidate will assist stakeholders in navigating challenges (complaints, concerns, conflicts, etc.) here on campus, with a focus on informal, substantive solutions and conflict mitigation.  The ombud will be another resource for UTC employees and play a role in enhancing the quality of your experience here at UTC.  This new position is an important development for us, and I hope you will join me in helping to publicize the search.

Review of candidates will begin on February 15, 2023, and I am very grateful to Vice Provost Shewanee Howard-Baptiste for her leadership of the committee.  We have high hopes for the search itself, as well as for what it will mean for our campus community. You can learn more about the position and share the posting via this link.  Please help us develop the best possible pool for this important position.

Thanks… and Go Mocs!
