Letter from U. Senate Chair Jim Mochoruk on UND Ombuds position

To the UND Community,

Although many of you will have seen that the new position of UND Ombuds has already been advertised in the press and posted on our Human Resources website as well as a few other places, the Senate Executive Committee wants to make certain that everyone on campus is aware of this unique part-time opportunity.  Although we will start looking at files in the near future the start date is not until May 15, so there is still plenty of time for interested persons to put in an application. Here is the advertisement:

The Ombuds serves students, staff, and faculty and reports to the President of the University.  The Ombuds must have a Bachelor’s degree; however, an advanced degree combined with relevant training or Ombuds experience in a research university with a strong tradition of shared governance is preferred.
