The UNLV Ombuds panel is designed to help those with unresolved issues with managers or colleagues to find useful resolutions and to create additional ways to identify opportunities for training and support services across campus. The Ombuds panel will utilize their skills in problem-solving and active listening to provide a real service to their colleagues.
Each panelist has demonstrated the ability to keep confidential matters confidential and the ability to engage in active listening.
Those who are selected for the ombuds panel will be able to hone their skills in problem-solving and active listening and will provide a real service to their colleagues. In return, the panelists will be given training, both on- and off-campus, in ombuds best practices and will receive release time to handle their share of ombuds issues as issues are reported.
The volunteer panelists will report to Nancy Rapoport, Special Counsel to the President and will share with her any trends and patterns that they’re observing (in a way that preserves confidentiality).
Each panelist should have a demonstrated record of the ability to keep confidential matters confidential and the ability to engage in active listening.
Review of applications will begin on Jan. 2, 2018, and will continue until up to six panelists are selected.
