Policy for Complaints Outside of Due Process for Programs

Written complaints can be taken by anyone within the College. Upon receipt of a complaint, the program director/chair is notified and expected to investigate the complaint. Upon completion of the review, the appropriate action or resolution, if any, is implemented (per Bob Cogswell, Campbell Office of Legal Affairs, 3-1-13).Anonymous complaints will not be accepted.

If a faculty/staff member receives a complaint, they are to report the concern to the Department program director/chair. The director/chair has discretionary authority to gather additional information and to make a judgment about the appropriate action or the need for involvement of the Dean or other University official. Should the complaint involve the program director/chair, the written grievance should be submitted to the Dean of the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Internal policies are in place within the University and College to protect complainants from retaliation.
