Last updated on:

Formerly Known As Policy Number: 
4.2.C

The appeal procedures outlined in Section 4.2.4 are designed to assure that decisions by faculty members and administrators comply with the standards of academic freedom established in Section 4.2.2. These procedures are internal to the University and are aimed at preserving confidentiality and academic integrity while protecting the rights of individual faculty members. The provisions of Section 4.2.2 do not create contractual rights subject to review by agencies outside the University. The procedures outlined in Section 4.2.3, however, constitute the administrative remedies for faculty appeals covered by parallel rights established under applicable federal and state laws (such as Civil Rights Acts).
