Students with Disabilities

Any student who has a disability which may require some modification of seating, testing, or other class requirements, should contact me that appropriate arrangements may be made. Students with disabilities should also contact the Office of Student Disabilities Services (335-1462).

Student Complaints:

A student who has a complaint related to this course should follow the procedures summarized below.

Ordinarily, the student should attempt to resolve the matter with the instructor first. Students may talk first to someone other than the instructor (the departmental executive officer, or the University Ombudsperson) if they do not feel, for whatever reason, that they can directly approach the instructor.

If the complaint is not resolved to the student's satisfaction, the student should go to the departmental executive officer.

If the matter remains unresolved, the student may submit a written complaint to the associate dean for academic programs. The associate dean will attempt to resolve the complaint and, if necessary, may convene a special committee to recommend appropriate action.

For any complaint that cannot be resolved through the mechanisms described above, please refer to the College's Student Academic Handbook for further information.
