Grievance Policy (Academic & Non-Academic)
In the relationship of student to faculty, dissatisfaction might develop. It is often the result of a misunderstanding or of insufficient information; in either case, the problem must be expressed before it can be settled.
Should questions concerning the interpretation or application of the policy of the Medical Laboratory Science Program arise, a student may use the following procedure to resolve the question.
The presentation of a grievance must be made within 10 days of its occurrence.
- Step I - Immediate Faculty Instructor. In order to minimize the possibility of a misunderstanding, a student is urged to first discuss the problem with the immediate instructor within 10 calendar days following its occurrence.
- Step II - Program Director. The problem may be referred to the Program Director if a satisfactory response has not been received from the instructor within ten calendar days from presentation of the problem to the faculty instructor.
- Step III- Committee. If a satisfactory solution is not obtained from the Program Director within ten days, an appeal can be made to a committee composed of the Pathology Department, Administrative Director, the Program Director, the Medical Director, and the Director of the Human Resources Department.
- Step IV - Final Decision. If a satisfactory solution is not obtained from this committee within 10 days an appointment with the Administrative Director may be requested. The Administrative Director in consultation with the Human Resources Director and Medical Director will review all aspects of the problem with all parties involved. This decision will be regarded as final and binding.
