Grievance Procedures

All members of the community should feel safe to bring forward complaints of violations of any University policy. Depending on the identities (faculty, staff, student, or visitor) of the involved parties and the nature of the reported incident, one or more of the University's grievance procedures may be invoked to respond. Information about these processes can be found using the links below. If you are unsure how to make a report, Campus Police will be able to direct you to the proper department. If you prefer a confidential resource, the Counseling Center will also be able to refer you to the appropriate department.
