Management of Non-Academic Complaints

Student concerns or complaints regarding non-academic matters can be aired to the administration of the School of Dentistry through the following mechanisms:

  1. class representatives on the Student-Faculty Advisory Group
  2. class representatives on the Dean’s Student Advisory Group
  3. directly to the Assistant/Associate Dean for Student Affairs as the designated student advocate

Depending on the nature of the issue, its resolution may be obtained through one of the above committees, by the direct action of the Assistant/Associate Dean for Student Affairs, by the formation of an ad hoc committee to investigate the scope of the problem and make recommendation(s) for a new policy, or direct action of the Dean. In each of the above mechanisms, the confidentiality of the student or students filing the complaint will be maintained.
