Student Academic Complaint Committee (SACC)

The purpose of the Student Academic Complaint Committee (SACC) is to hear and discuss any academic complaints lodged by students and to make recommendations to the School Director concerning the resolution of those complaints. As in the work of all of the School’s committees, the School’s SACC is expected to use the processes and principles of constructive conflict management in conducting its business. 

The Student Academic Complaint Committee (SACC) shall consist of two full-time TT or NTT faculty members of the School and an undergraduate Applied Conflict Management major or minor in good standing in the School.  The faculty members of the SACC, including its Chair, shall be selected at the first Faculty Meeting of the academic year. The policies and procedures of this committee are governed by University Policy 3342-4-02.3

In the event that a member of the Student Academic Complaint Committee is the subject of or may otherwise be involved with a student complaint, the Director will select a replacement from the full-time TT or NTT faculty. If the Chair of the SACC is the subject of or may otherwise be involved with a student complaint, the Director will appoint a member of the Student Academic Complaint Committee to chair the committee and the Director will appoint an additional member to the committee from the Faculty.
