University Ombudsperson

Concordia University invites applications for the position of University Ombudsperson. The Ombudsperson reports formally to the Rector but acts independently of administrative structures of the University. The Ombudsperson: i) is a confidential source of information and advice on university regulations and procedures; ii) helps university members resolve problems quickly and informally; iii) inquires into University-related concerns or complaints; iv) inquires into the application of University policies and procedures; and v) makes recommendations where appropriate to remedy individual and systemic problems. The Ombudsperson also supervises a professional assistant.

The successful candidate must possess at least a Bachelor's Degree, have substantial experience as an Ombudsperson or in a related field and have a good sense of administrative fairness. Knowledge of the structure and functioning of universities is a definite asset. Exceptional communications skills in English and French are required.

This is a renewable contract position, initially for two years. Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, accompanied by a brief description identifying their suitability for the position and their understanding of the Ombuds role within a university setting, to:

Garry Milton, Executive Director, Rector's Cabinet

c/o Vice-Rector, Institutional Relations and Secretary-General

Concordia University, 1455 de Maisonneuve West

Montreal (QC) H3G 1M8

Concordia University is committed to Employment Equity and encourages applications from women, aboriginal peoples, visible minorities and persons with disabilities.



Bring "lost" alumni back into the fold -- and win a trip

A cross-Canada trip for two could be yours if you can supply some missing alumni addresses in time to enjoy our year of 25th anniversary activities.

The trip will be on VIA's flagship train, The Canadian, and the prize will also include several nights at a top Vancouver hotel and car rental while in B.C.

All you have to do is help the Alumni Office locate some missing members of the Concordia family. For every three addresses you supply, you'll earn a chance in the draw, to be held at Homecoming 2000.

In October, a complete listing of the missing graduates, a form for missing addresses, and a detailed description of the trip will be posted on the Alumni Affairs Web site,
