There are four grievance procedures available to graduate students:
- The Graduate School Procedure for Student Complaints
- The Provost’s Procedure for Student Complaints
- The University-Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct (UWC)
- The President’s Procedure for Addressing Students’ Complaints of Racial or Ethnic Harassment
A student may use no more than one of these procedures for redress of any single complaint.
Graduate students who have concerns regarding the issue of sexual misconduct may discuss them with Dean Michelle Nearon, who serves as the Title IX coordinator for the Graduate School. Find a full list of Title IX Coordinators here.
The Dean of the Graduate School appoints several committees each year comprised of administrators, faculty and students to review student grievances.
