Ombudsman on Campus: A Review
Speck, David G.
The position of ombudsman at institutions of higher education is discussed in terms of role, responsibilities and limitations. The author believes the need for an ombudsman stems from a greatly increased student enrollment and an accompanying impersonality regarding academic and administrative procedures. There is a discussion of typical problems brought before the ombudsman, the manner in which ombudsmen have acted upon these problems, the optimum length of time in office, methods for filling the position, benefits of having such a position, and his role in crisis situations. A list of references follows the paper. (WVM)
