Students are encouraged to discuss their concerns with staff in DSS. DSS staff will attempt to resolve the issues causing concern by assisting the student in discussing issues with the faculty member, department, or program, participating in such discussions, or calling the faculty member and/or head of the department in an effort to clarify and resolve issues. Most situations are positively resolved through this process. If a satisfactory resolution is still not reached, the student should notify the Office of Affirmative Action where grievance procedures are filed for all students, inlcuding students with disabilities.
