This policy for addressing program complaints excludes complaints for which there is an established University, College, or Program policy or procedure, such as grade appeals, academic dismissal appeals, or allegations of racial, sexual, or gender harassment. These matters are covered in the Physical Therapy Student Handbook, the University Student Conduct Policies, or through the Office of Diversity and Affirmative Action.
An individual who has a concern/complaint following an experience/encounter with any student, faculty, or staff member is welcome to communicate their complaint. Program complaints are recognized as an opportunity for program improvement and should be expressed with this end in mind. A complainant can choose to communicate a complaint either informally and formally.
