Appendix C. Grievance Procedures

Collegial Communications

Most faculty concerns or complaints can be resolved informally through normal collegial communications. Accordingly, faculty members are encouraged to take their complaints to their relevant supervisor in the normal spirit of faculty problem solving. The grievant is strongly urged to involve the Ombudsperson. If this does not lead to a mutually satisfactory outcome, the faculty member may pursue the issue through the procedural steps below.

Department or division heads or chairs, deans or directors, and other administrative faculty shall assist the faculty member in the processing of the grievance.

Full details related to grievances are outlined in Senate Policy 704.1 and Senate Procedure 704.1.1.
