GRIEVANCE PROCEDURES

The University encourages informal resolution of problems through direct conversations, the assistance of administrators and the use of mediators as appropriate. Many of the University’s formal grievance procedures require an initial attempt at informal resolution before they may proceed. The University Faculty may bring grievances against other members of the University community through several different processes depending upon the classification (employee/student) of the individual against whom the grievance is made and the nature of the grievance.

Faculty Grievances

A faculty member may assert an academic grievance (other than matters concerning retention, tenure, or promotion) through theAcademic Freedom and Faculty Rights Committee after initial administrative review.
