AP.13 Academic Grievance System

The student academic grievance system provides responsible institutional alternatives for the student who has a legitimate complaint to make against a member of the faculty. The grievance system is intended primarily to safeguard the rights of students, but also to protect the faculty from complaints that are unsupported or insubstantial. The grievance system is not intended either to change existing academic or college policy or to persecute, penalize or in any way diminish the academic freedom of individual faculty members.
