Professional Development and the Revitalization of a Regional Ombuds Group in the SE US

By Tim Hedeen, Professor of Conflict Management and University Ombuds, Kennesaw State University
and Jennifer Schneider, Student Ombuds, University of South Florida

 Do you like sunshine, history, and architecture?
 Do you enjoy meeting with other bright, like-minded people?
 Are you an ombuds in the southeastern region of the US?

If you answered affirmatively to any of the above statements, then join us in Savannah, GA this summer!

Kennesaw State University is hosting a Summer Institute for Conflict Management Professionals in June. The institute offers a 28-hour general mediation training as well as a 4-day workshop on restorative justice practices. Of particular interest to IOA members may be a series of ombuds workshops being held on Wednesday, June 19 and Thursday, June 20. Topics include assessment strategies, responses to concerns about sexual misconduct and race, restorative justice, and coaching. Facilitators include Tim Hedeen (KSU), Bina Patel (NGIC), Susan Raines (KSU), Mary Rowe (MIT), and Jennifer Schneider (USF).

On Friday, June 21, we will kick off a more informal gathering of ombuds from the southeastern region of the US. Much of that time will be spent considering future meetings as we attempt to revitalize a Southeast Ombuds Consortium.
