Student Academic Complaint Committee

The Student Academic Complaint Committee is composed of 3 faculty members, at least two of whom must be tenured or tenure-track faculty members, and at least one student appointed by the FAC. The FAC, or any other standing committee of the department determined by the FAC, with the addition of at least one student, may also function as the SACC. The Chair of the SACC is elected by the SACC at the beginning of each academic year. The policies and procedures of this committee are governed by University Policy 3342-4-02.3. The policy provides for only one SACC in each department.

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 FAC will select a replacement from the full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty.  If the Chair of the SACC is the subject of or may otherwise be involved with a student complaint, the Chair will appoint another member of the SACC to chair the committee, and the FAC will appoint an additional member to the committee from the full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty.
