Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:
One of the campuswide budget reduction strategies involves the elimination of the position of ombudsperson, currently held by Adrianne Andrews. Adrianne has served the community well in this role and has provided advice and counsel to many members of the Smith community. She will continue to serve the college as a lecturer in Afro-American studies and in anthropology. She will also perform interim duties for the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity as the adviser for equity complaints, serving as the initial contact for complaints or concerns about bias, discrimination or sexual harassment.
While the position of ombudsperson will no longer exist, I want to remind you of alternate resources available to you:
Carol T. Christ
