Student Concerns and Appeals

The Program in Teacher Preparation is committed to creating a positive and productive learning environment for all students. All appeals for course grade or concerns about an incident should follow University policies and procedure. It is suggested that students first consult with the professor or staff member associated with the concern. If the concern is not resolved at that level, the student should consult with the director of the program.

If the above steps do not address the issue, then the student should bring the concern to their residential college staff or to the Office of the Dean of the College. Incidents of discrimination or harassment should be reported to the director for institutional equity and diversity.

If the student believes that the grade was inconsistent with stated policies, a further appeal can be brought to the dean of the college (returning alumni would take such appeals to the deputy dean of the college).
