New Graduate Student Grievance Procedures Adopted by Faculty

November 9, 2018

Changes to the Graduate Student Grievance Procedures in the Faculty Rules and Regulations were unanimously approved by the Brown University Faculty earlier this week. The revised policy was developed by a working group comprised of faculty, staff and graduate students. Important highlights of the policy include:

  • explicit time frames for responses to grievances
  • student involvement in the adjudication of grievances
  • clear distinctions between informal efforts and the formal grievance process
  • students are not required to attempt to resolve the complaint directly with the respondent
