SAAs: Not sure whom to contact about grievances?
Student Academic Appointees (SAAs) seeking assistance in resolving academic, financial, and conduct issues, can reach out to the Student Advocates Office or to the Graduate School. Issues regarding discrimination should be referred to the Office of Institutional Equity, and issues regarding research misconduct should be referred to the Office of the Vice President for Research.
SAAs seeking to appeal actions or conditions affecting their role—including such matters as dismissal, academic freedom, reappointment, and the nature and conditions of work—can seek redress of grievances at the department and/or unit level. If resolution on these issues cannot be reached, SAAs may reach out to the Bloomington Faculty Council office to be connected with the appropriate grievance committee.
