Log of Student Complaints
Records of formal, written, and signed student complaints are maintained by the Office of the Provost, the Vice President for Student Services, the Office of Compliance and Equity Management, and the Graduate College. These records include summary information regarding the name(s) of the complainant(s), the date and nature of the complaint, and steps taken to resolve the complaint, including referral to outside agencies and other external actions initiated by the student and known to the University. A summary of these records will be available to the NCA Consultant-Evaluators at the time of the University's comprehensive evaluation. Only summary data will be provided, in order to maintain confidentiality and to protect the privacy of complainants and others.
