Faculty are encouraged to seek guidance regarding concerns at any time without fear of reprisal. The Faculty Ombuds Officer will hear individual or broader systemic faculty concerns confidentially, but does not serve notice to the university, cannot impose remedies or sanctions, and cannot enforce or change any policy, rule, or procedure.
Dr. Buchanan can be reached via email at email@example.com or by phone at 979-862-3229. As a reminder, please don't put anything confidential in your email.
The Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President would like to recognize and thank the outgoing Faculty Ombuds Officer, Dr. George Welch, for his outstanding service in this position for the last three years. His dedication to Texas A&M University has been truly remarkable, and our university is better for all that he has done to help faculty in their time of need.
We also thank the Faculty Ombuds Officer Search Committee for the outstanding job they did in reviewing each the applications, calling references, and holding interviews. The committee members included Co-chairs Patrick Louchouarn and John N. Stallone, Craig Coates, Fred Nafukho, Nancy Welsh, Claire Katz, Jon Jasperson, Michael Dewsap, Mark Westhusin, and Daniel Jimenez.
Please join me in congratulating Dr. Buchanan for his new role.
