Students have the right to complain, whether verbally or in writing, regarding any area of academic or student life without fear of coercion, harassment, intimidation, or reprisal from the institution or its employees. Students also have the right to expect a timely response to any complaint related to student life. However, defamatory or baseless charges may cause a student to be held responsible for violations of institutional policies or for action through the courts.
If a student has a complaint, grievance, or concern based on academic, personnel, research, ethical, policy or non-academic issues in instances where an existing institutional policy does not apply, the student should first discuss the issue at hand with his/her mentor or faculty advisor and/or director of the graduate program in which the students is enrolled. If satisfaction is not received, the student should contact the SoPH Associate Dean of Student Affairs according to the procedure outlined below.
