My name is Waged Jafer and I am excited and honoured to be part of the Quest Community as an ombudsperson and I look forward to working with all members of the community, including, students, faculty and staff. My role is to provide advice and assistance through an independent, impartial and strictly confidential process to ensure all members are able to pursue a just and fair solutions to disputes.
My background in Conflict Resolution and Peace Studies opened up various exciting opportunities for me throughout the years. I have worked in student affairs in higher education, as a Conflict Management Consultant, University Instructor and an Ombudsperson.
My role as an ombudsperson is not a full-time position at this time as I am completing my doctoral studies at the University of British Columbia. If I am not busy with my ombudsperson responsibilities, reading and writing my dissertation, I enjoy photography, travelling and all kinds of out-door activates.
