The Subcommittee shall adjudicate each case according to common and accepted academic practices. It shall sustain grievances where instructors have not employed such practices and reject grievances where instructors have employed such practices.
Operating Guidelines for the Subcommittee on Undergraduate Student Academic Grievances
The Subcommittee will consult with the student(s) involved and other rele-vant parties in its effort to reach a decision. (The chairs of Elementary and Adolescence Education will be consulted in appeals involving student teaching for their respective areas.)
After considering a grievance, the Subcommittee shall designate a specific course of action or disposition. The Subcommittee shall give in writing to all direct parties of a grievance a statement of its disposition and a justification of its decision. The Subcommittee’s decisions shall be final and shall be justifiable according to accepted academic practices. Accepted academic practices may be defined by the faculty in meeting may define academic practices and the Committee on Instruction shall move for such a definition when requested to do so by any party to a grievance. Such definitions shall be binding upon the Subcommittee.
