You should review the relevant portions of the Faculty Handbook that apply to
Complaints and Grievances, Section 1.4.
You are advised to discuss your matter of concern with one of the Procedural
Consultants, who are trained to assist you in this process. The names and
contact information for the Procedural Consultants can be obtained from your
department office, dean’s office, Office of Human Resources, Office of Legal Affairs, and
the Faculty Senate website, http://www.etsu.edu/senate/.
If your matter of concern involves a violation of (1) ETSU policy, (2) TBR
policy, or (3) right(s) guaranteed in the United States Constitution, you
should consider filing a Grievance, rather than a Complaint. If you are unsure
whether your matter of concern is a “complaint” or a “grievance,” discuss this with a
Procedural Consultant or review Section 188.8.131.52 of the Faculty Handbook.
THIS IS NOT THE PROPER FORM OR PROCESS FOR PURSUING A MATTER OF
CONCERN INVOLVING GENDER OR RACIAL DISCRIMINATION. See Section
1.4.3 of the Faculty Handbook for information about the proper avenues pursuing those
matters of concern or discuss this with a Procedural Consultant.
Please remember that you must
meet all established deadlines for filing this
Complaint. Failure to meet these deadlines can result in your complaint not
being heard or acted upon.
