Medical Center 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.
Whenever possible, students are encouraged to seek an informal resolution of the matter directly with the faculty, administrator or individual(s) involved. Often a complaint can be resolved in this way. If an informal approach is neither successful nor advisable, the student should use the online student complaint system found on the Medical Center's student affairs website to file the complaint.
