Student Rights ______________________________________________________ Student Grievance Procedure If you have a grievance because of a grade received, academic related problem, or other grievable situation, you may follow a step-by-step process that could include the instructor, Program Director, Academic Dean, a Vice President and President. The President shall serve as the final arbiter. The written procedure for this appeal process is available from the Vice President of Student & Academic Services. Definition—working day: any day when the Administrative Offices are open. LEVEL I—Instructor A student with a grievance should first discuss it with his/her instructor in an effort to resolve the problem. LEVEL II—Program Director When the grievance is not resolved at Level I, the student should discuss it with the Program Director (where applicable) with the objective of resolving the grievance informally. LEVEL III—Academic Dean When the grievance is not resolved at Level II, the student should discuss it with his/her Academic Dean with the objective of resolving the grievance informally. LEVEL IV—Vice President When the grievance is not resolved at Level III and the student wishes to pursue the grievance, the student shall file a complaint in writing and submit the written grievance to the appropriate Vice President. Grievances concerning grades, academic-related issues, and all other issues shall be submitted to the Vice President of Student & Academic Services. The filing of the formal, written complaint at Level IV must be within fifteen (15) working days from date of the event giving rise to the grievance or from the date the grievant could reasonably become aware of such occurrence. The grievant may request that a meeting concerning the complaint be held with the Vice President. A minor student may be accompanied at the meeting by a parent or guardian. The Vice President shall investigate the grievance and attempt to resolve it. A written report from the Vice President regarding action taken will be sent within fifteen (15) working days after receiving the written document. LEVEL V—President When the grievance is not resolved at Level IV, the grievant may process it to Level V by presenting a written appeal to the President of the College within ten (10) working days from the date the grievant receives the report from the Vice President. Within fifteen (15) working days after receiving the written grievance, the President will render a written decision. The decision of the President is final. This procedure in no way denies the right of the grievant to file formal complaints with the Iowa Civil Rights Commission, other agencies available for mediation or recertification of affirmative action grievances, or to seek private counsel for complaints alleging discrimination. Sexual Violence Procedures and Regulations Reference Board Policy 577 It is the policy of the College to make a good faith effort to adhere to all applicable provisions of Section 304 of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013, also known as the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (“SaVE Act”).
