Contact the Faculty Ombudsperson


Sandy McKeown, JD, currently serves as the faculty ombudsperson. In addition to the form below, Professor McKeown can be reached at, 605-658-6767 (office) or 605-212-8952 (mobile) by faculty at all ranks. Concerns about working conditions that may be non-compliant with institutional or board policy must be addressed within very short deadlines so faculty are encouraged to contact Professor McKeown promptly when an issue arises.

In all situations, the ombudsperson is an advisor rather than an advocate, providing counsel about policy and process rather than acting as the faculty member’s representative. Learn more about USD's faculty ombudsperson on Coyote OneStop.
