The administrative policy and procedures for student academic complaints is established to provide an appropriate framework for resolving student complaints of an academic nature. In initiating the complaint, and throughout the procedure, the student may seek the counsel of the university ombudsman, who will provide information as necessary. There shall be no retaliation or abridgement of a student's rights resulting from this process. In order to review complaints and make recommendations to the Chair regarding specific cases of an academic nature against the department or individual faculty member, the department has established a Standing Student Academic Complaint Committee.
If you feel at any time that you have a legitimate complaint concerning a course and/or instructor in the Department, you should contact the departmental Chair, Dr. Andrew Barnes, 302 Bowman, 330-672-2060.
