About the Graduate Assistants

The Graduate Assistants to the Alternative Dispute Resolution/Ombudsperson for Faculty program provide a variety of services and support to the Ombudsperson. Our GAs are responsible for maintaining our website and providing small articles on a weekly basis for use in the blog as well as working to put together our monthly online newsletter. Our GAs attend all our workshops and trainings. Each GA gives a workshop during the time of this assistantship. For those who are interested in learning more about mediation in an experiential setting, consider applying for a position with us by contacting the current Ombudsperson (ombudsfac [at] unm.edu).
