Student Complaint Procedure
A student complaint is defined as any dissatisfaction occurring as the result of a student’s belief that any academic or non-academic situation affects the student unjustly or inequitably. If you have a complaint against a Limestone University student, faculty, staff, or administrator for sexual harassment, discrimination, or assault, and/or domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking you should contact the Title IX Coordinator or one of the Designated Deputy Coordinators.
The student has the right to raise a complaint and to have that complaint considered with courtesy and objectivity, in a timely fashion, and without fear of prejudicial treatment. The following procedures are applicable for a student with a complaint.
• The student should first discuss the matter with the person or persons directly involved, in an attempt to resolve the complaint through informal discussion. The student should make his/her advisor aware of the situation if the advisor is not directly involved.
• If there is no resolution, the student should discuss the matter with the appropriate first level supervisor or administrator both verbally and in writing. The written statement should include a narrative of the situation and the individual with whom the discussion took place. If no resolution is reached, the student may then present a written complaint to the appropriate vice president.
• If reconciliation has not been achieved, the student may then schedule an appointment with the Provost, after submitting a written complaint to him/her.
• If after meeting with the Provost, the complaint is not reconciled, then the student may schedule an appointment with the President of the College.
