Complaints against faculty members may be initiated in a variety of ways. Typically, a complaint that a faculty member has violated this Policy is initiated with the appropriate dean. The Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the deans of the professional schools and their designees are best prepared to handle such complaints, sometimes in consultation with the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action. Any student, faculty or non-faculty employee or guest may also consult with the EO/AA office about a concern about the alleged discriminatory behavior of a faculty member. If informal resolution of complaints against faculty is unsuccessful, formal charges and disciplinary action must be handled under Paragraph 4 of the Agreement Concerning Academic Freedom, Tenure, and Responsibility as set out in the Organization of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
