The Office of Innovation in Student Life Records document the Office of Innovation in Student Life on the University of California, Irvine campus, and, more generally, the field of ombudsmanry. The records cover the tenure of the first ombudsman on the UCI campus, Dr. Jack Little, beginning in 1967 when the position of ombudsman was first being created in schools, cities and other organizations, and ending in 1973, shortly after Little left the campus.
The Office of Innovation in Student Life began in May 1967 when Dr. Jack Little was hired as Assistant to the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs for Co-Curricular Learning. The position of Ombudsman was created within the Office of Innovation in Student Life, and Little served in this role as student advocate and counsellor at large on the campus, and to work to resolve grievances. The name of the office was changed in 1973 to Office of the Ombudsman.
