Resolution on Ombud

Whereas, an Ombud, who acts confidentially to resolve a variety of concerns of faculty,
staff, or administrators, is an important person in large organizations, and

Whereas, an Ombud can serve both the university and its employees by providing
impartial advice outside of a formal grievance process, and

Whereas other universities in the UNC system and across the country have successfully adopted the Ombuds model, and

Whereas North Carolina State University currently has no such office, and

Whereas NC State has discussed the creation of an Ombuds office for over forty years
and the Faculty Senate has passed resolutions in the past to this effect,

Be it resolved that North Carolina State University should institute an Ombuds position
as described in the appendix to this resolution.
