Equal Opportunity Grievance Procedures


Notice of Non-Discrimination

Any employee or student of Dartmouth College who believes that he or she has been subjected to a violation of the Policy may bring a grievance under the Equal Opportunity Grievance Procedure. This includes any exempt, non-exempt or union employee, faculty member, student employee, or applicant for employment in Arts & Sciences, Geisel School of Medicine, Tuck School of Business, and Thayer School of Engineering. Visitors or guests of the College may also use the Grievance Procedure if they believe they are the victim of discrimination prohibited by the Policy.  

The Equal Opportunity Grievance Procedure most fully serves exempt and non-exempt and service employees with discrimination complaints. Therefore, the process described below focuses primarily on the specifics of handling grievances by and against such employees. The exceptions that apply when complaints are by or against students or against faculty members are explained in a separate section.  Federal and state law and College policy prohibit retaliation against an employee who complains about a possible violation of the Policy.

Grievants must register their concerns within two academic terms (six months) of the alleged violation in order to have access to the entire Equal Opportunity Grievance Procedure.

*Dartmouth College refers to the entire institution, including the professional schools, graduate programs, and auxiliary activities.
