Position Announcement

Internal Search for University Faculty Ombudsperson

The University is seeking applications and nominations for the position of Faculty Ombudsperson. The Ombudsperson will serve in a part-time position with appropriate compensation and reduction in other responsibilities. The appointment is for a one-year term, but it may be extended by mutual agreement of the appointee and the university. A description of duties and qualifications for the position is available online. The search and selection of the Ombudsperson is being conducted by the Faculty Senate.

Any tenured, full-time faculty member interested in applying for this position should submit a formal letter of application addressed to Candace C. Justice, Chair of the Ombudsperson Search Committee, and sent by e-mail to the office of the Faculty Senate. This letter should explain an applicant’s interest in and qualifications for the position. The application should also include a curriculum vitae, including at least three references within the university (names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses), and a completed Affirmative Action Form.

Faculty can also nominate colleagues who might make a good Ombudsperson by sending a letter of nomination to the office of the Faculty Senate. The search committee will then contact the nominee directly.

All nominations and letters of application should be submitted by 4:30 p.m. Friday, October 16, 2009.

This is an important position and can play a key role in ensuring that faculty members at the University of Memphis have a source of help when they encounter problems. Faculty are encouraged to give serious consideration to applying or nominating a qualified colleague.


Jeffrey S. Berman
President, Faculty Senate
