Most complaints by and against students alleging violations of this Policy are handled by the Dean of the College Office. When a student is acting as an employee of the College and is accused of discrimination, a grievant may initiate the grievance review procedure set out above. However, in such a case, the composition and decision of the Hearing Review Committee, as well as the request for reconsideration, would be handled differently from the process outlined above. The Hearing Review Committee will be selected by the dean of the school of the student against whom the grievance was filed, and will consist of one person from the Campus Climate Committee or the 504/ADA Committee, one faculty or staff member from the school, and one student. The decision of the Committee will be reviewed by the appropriate dean along with the Provost. In the event that the student complained against requests reconsideration, the Provost will review that request with the appropriate dean.
Students with discrimination grievances against non-faculty employees may use the Equal Opportunity Grievance Procedure. Students requesting a hearing as a result of a discrimination grievance against a non-faculty employee will, in consultation with the appropriate dean, choose one member from the Campus Climate Committee or the 504/ADA Committee. In the event that the student requests reconsideration, the Provost will review that request with the appropriate dean.
