Wright State creates new public advocate role


Wright State University has created a new position for ombudsman and named a longtime educator to the role.

The school has newly created the ombudsman position — an advocate to direct students and faculty and staff in the university — and named Hazel Rountree to the role. Rountree was most recently assistant director for affirmative action at Wright State.

Wright State — Dayton’s third-largest college or university with 17,600 students and 2,400 employees — says it’s part of a new strategic plan that will help breed new ideas.

“I want to be a point of contact for anyone — students, faculty or staff — to discuss issues and get them to the place they need to be,” Rountree said in a statement. “The second part is to be proactive and identify patterns and trends that help employees.”
