Policy: Individuals should always try to resolve issues informally. If a more
formal approach becomes necessary, the institution provides a fair
and a reasonable mechanism for resolution.
Step One: Try to resolve the issue directly with the other party. If not resolved proceed to step 2.
Step Two: Submit your complaint in writing to the Administrator. He/She will
request submissions from all involved parties, including witnesses;
Conduct an investigation and set up a meeting within 48 hours.
The Administrator will provide a written decision to all parties within
72 hours. If not resolved, proceed to step 3.
Step Three: Repeat step two with a higher authority within the institution, if
possible. If no resolution is forthcoming, then proceed with step 4.
Step Four: The parties appoint an outside mediator/arbitrator within 48
hours. The student will bear the cost of mediation/arbitration.
