program director. The student has one calendar year from the date the grade is assigned to initiate the grievance. The normal academic channels are department chair or program director, academic dean and the provost. However, before considering a grievance, the department chair or program director (dean) will refer the issue to a departmental or program (college/school) committee of faculty. If the committee cannot reach a decision acceptable to the parties involved, the matter will follow the remaining academic channels. The decision of the provost is final. Information specific to the procedures to be followed in each academic unit is available in the office of the academic dean.
The dean of the college or school in which a student is enrolled, or the director of the University Advising Center if the student has not declared a pre-major, has jurisdiction over the student’s program of study, degree requirements and all other academic matters including grievances. However, students taking a course in a college or school other than the one in which they are primarily registered are subject to the dean of the college or school in which the course is offered concerning the course and academic grievances regarding the course.
Responsible Use of Electronic Communications:
Electronic communications conducted in the course of a class are public communications in the same way that classroom exchanges are public. Your instructor and other students are bound by the same principles of respect, professionalism, and concern, as you would find in any interaction in one of the University's classrooms or offices. If you feel that these principles have been compromised in some way, please discuss this directly with your instructor.
Any communication which is intimidating or harassing, including any derogatory or inappropriate comments regarding race, gender, age, religion, or sexual orientation, are unacceptable and subject to the same disciplinary action that they would receive if they occurred in the physical classroom. If you have concerns about something that has been said, please let your instructor know.
