About the Faculty Ombudsperson

Dr. Sacasas
René Sacasas, professor and former chair of the Business Law Department for 25 years has built a distinguished career in academia and service over his 30 years at the University of Miami’s School of Business Administration. Professor Sacasas was the 2014 recipient of the James W. McLamore Outstanding Service Award and is a member of Iron Arrow. Professor Sacasas, a long-serving member and former Vice-Chair of the Faculty Senate, is specifically charged with assisting individual faculty or groups of faculty throughout the University of Miami explore their options for resolving conflicts, problematic issues, questions or concerns, and bringing systemic issues to the attention of the appropriate unit or academic leadership for resolution.

Professor Sacasas will work collaboratively with Professor Norman H. Altman, the Miller School of Medicine’s Faculty Ombudsperson. Although Professor Altman will continue to oversee the majority of cases at the Miller School of Medicine, each will serve as a resource for the other and as a substitute for each other when conflicts arise.
