Students may bring to the attention of the Academic Vice-President/Dean, in writing, an appeal for exceptions to non-academic (general community, housing, health, or disability) policies or petition to have those policies changed. The procedures set forth below apply to non-academic issues only. Information about academic appeals and petitions is included in the Academic Policies section of this Handbook.
In every case, the first step in dealing with concerns related to non-academic issues is to raise the concern with the appropriate person, office, or committee. One or more students concerned that the person, office, or committee normally responsible for the non-academic policy in question has not been responsive should follow the Grievance Policy procedures listed in this Handbook.
