Dispute Reslolution

All University faculty have rights and responsibilities that are protected under the University Handbook, which includes the Faculty Code. Faculty who are concerned about possible injustices or mistreatment have many options at their disposal. The two links below contain detailed guides to those options:

Especially if the aggrieving action may violate the Faculty Code, it is appropriate to contact the Secretary of the Faculty for information about the adjudication process set forth in Chapter 28 of the Faculty Code.

Chapter 28 mandates the appointment of an Adjudication Panel, a broad-based peer group whose members hear grievances and recommend remedies. The Chair of this Panel reports annually on the work of the Panel. Current members of the Adjudication Panel, and the Panel's current annual report, are as follows:
