We invite you to participate in a conversation online organized by ENOHE, the European Network of Ombuds in Higher Education on June 22, 2021, 1400 CET (-1600 CET), on how to set up ombuds offices within higher education institutions.
The 49 higher education ministers of the Council of Europe countries or their representatives have recently approved the Rome Communique of 19 November 2020. In their statement, the ministers recognize the importance of safeguarding student rights through legislation. They committed themselves to developing and supporting in their respective national systems dedicated measures and structures, such as student ombudspersons or similar solutions that already exist in many countries. They also committed themselves to enabling such arrangements within their countries and higher education systems and will encourage cooperation within the ENOHE. ENOHE hence organizes and offers to the broader European higher education community a special webinar on the topic of how and why to create ombuds offices at higher education institutions.
Our speakers are renowned experts in their fields: Tamta Demetrazde (Georgia), Helga Nolte (Germany), Brent Epperson (Luxembourg / Canada) and Tom Kosakowski (USA).
This webinar is a forum for everybody interested in or involved in the ombudsman idea. Participants are invited to share and compare their experiences. It is an opportunity to learn from our speakers and each other, and network with and generate ideas from already practicing colleagues from countries in and beyond Europe.
The event will be recorded and made available via podcast afterwards. With your registration, you agree to recording. A written publication within the series of “ENOHE Occasional Papers” is also planned.
Required: Web access to Zoom 5.0
