Provost Sarah Mangelsdorf and the Ombuds Office are currently searching for several new ombuds to begin service on July 1, 2019.
Based on current priorities of the ombuds team, the office is seeking recently retired faculty and staff with broad university experience. Governance and/or administrative experience/leadership skills in conflict management will be considered a plus. Successful applicants must enjoy working with people and contributing fully to the work of the Ombuds Office.
The Ombuds Office was created to provide an alternative resource for all UW–Madison employees (faculty, academic staff, university staff, graduate students, post-docs, and student staff members) seeking assistance with work related issues.
The Ombuds Office is comprised of five retired UW employees representing faculty and staff whose expertise comes from decades of service to the campus in wide variety of different disciplines and positions. Ombuds are selected to achieve the greatest breadth and depth of university experience. Ombuds generally serve a term of three years.
