Oregon State University announced Wednesday that Susan Theiss of the University of Arkansas will serve as the university's first ombudswoman.

Theiss will act as a neutral resource to assist conflict resolution. She won't advocate for any particular individual or OSU, but will seek out fair outcomes during conflict.

OSU President Ed Ray established the position earlier this year.

"This new position is a natural and positive reflection of Oregon State University's growth and increasing diversity on campus," Ray said in a release. "Having a completely neutral person available to assist the campus community and provide conflict resolution as needed will contribute to an environment of fairness and well-being that we continually strive to achieve."

Theiss held a similar position at the University of Arkansas since 2002, and previously served as a part-time ombudswoman for the University of Arizona. She also worked as an administrator in the health-care field in Arizona.

Theiss will begin Feb. 13.
