Faculty Grievances and Appeals Procedures:

The Grievance and Appeals process for the hearing and disposition of faculty grievances and appeals of Kent State University at Trumbull fully complies with the Grievance/Appeals process contained in the current and applicable Collective Bargaining Agreement.  This process will be observed in the letter and spirit of both procedural and substantive due process.  Before a formal process begins, faculty members are encouraged to attempt to resolve all grievances informally.

Faculty grievances that are not directly related to the terms or conditions of employment and are not academic appeals are appropriately addressed within the Campus, whenever possible.  The Campus Dean and/or Assistant/Associate Dean and/or faculty member will initiate an informal dialogue with all parties involved in a dispute and strive to reach a resolution agreeable to all parties.
