University Ombuds 

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte is seeking applications for a University Ombuds for the Chancellor’s office. UNC Charlotte is North Carolina’s urban research university and is located in one of America’s fastest growing and most diverse cities. It leverages its location in the state’s largest and most dynamic city to offer internationally competitive programs of research and creative activity, exemplary undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs, and impactful community engagement initiatives. UNC Charlotte is committed to working collaboratively with community partners to address the cultural, economic, educational, environmental, health, and social needs of the greater Charlotte region in line with the community’s focus on racial equity and economic mobility. This fall, the University enrolled 30,448 students in its seven academic colleges offering 171 undergraduate majors in 77 programs leading to Bachelor’s degrees, 65 Master’s degrees, and 24 Doctoral degrees. UNC Charlotte is proud to have 3,545 passionate and committed faculty and staff members and more than 120,000 living alumni. 

Minimum Qualifications: Candidates must possess an advanced degree, such as a Master’s degree, JD or PhD.

Essential Job Duties: UNC Charlotte is committed to supporting the success of its faculty and staff through every stage of their employment at the university. UNC Charlotte is likewise committed to creating and maintaining a diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce and to providing faculty and staff support for professional and personal development. In furtherance of this commitment, UNC Charlotte is seeking applications for its first University Ombuds, whereby services currently offered exclusively to faculty will now be offered to both faculty and staff. The person in this position will serve as a designated neutral or impartial dispute resolution practitioner whose major function is to provide confidential and informal assistance to UNC Charlotte faculty and staff members and their supervisors. In keeping with the confidential nature of the University Ombuds services, the University Ombuds will not be regarded as an “office of notice” or otherwise have independent authority to resolve employee grievances or disputes. Serving as a designated neutral party, the University Ombuds is neither an advocate for any individual nor the university, but instead is an advocate for fairness. The person in this position will act as a source of information and referral for employees, aid in answering questions, and provide resources to assist in informal conflict resolution, as appropriate.
