How to address grievances and complaints:

                If a student has a grievance or a complaint regarding a faculty member, it should be brought to the attention of the Associate Dean for Faculty.  If the Associate Dean determines that there is a basis for formal inquiry and the grievance cannot be resolved informally, it will be forwarded to the Dean's Advisory Committee for appropriate action.  The Dean's Advisory Committee will make a recommendation to the Dean regarding the disposition of the matter.

                If a student has a grievance or a complaint regarding a disability accommodation or related matter, it should be reported to the Office of Student Affairs.  If the Office of Student Affairs is unable to resolve the matter informally, the student will have the opportunity to present his/her concerns to the Committee on Disability Issues.  If the student is dissatisfied with the resolution of the matter by the Committee on Disability Issues, the student may then bring the matter to the Associate Dean for Faculty.  If the Associate Dean is unable to resolve the matter informally or if the student is dissatisfied with the resolution, the student may make a written appeal to the Dean.

                A student having a grievance or a complaint regarding an issue other than an academic or disability one should present that issue to the Office of Student Affairs.  If the Office of Student Affairs is unable to resolve the matter informally, it will be forwarded to the Associate Dean for Student Affairs for appropriate action. If the matter cannot be satisfactorily resolved by the Associate Dean, the student may make a written appeal to the Dean.
