Filing/Handling of Complaints

Filing and Handling of Complaints Related to the Didactic Program in Nutrition and Dietetics

Students in the program who have a complaint related to the program can file a complaint in writing with the program director.  The complaint must be signed, anonymous complaints will not be considered.  After receiving the complaint, the program director will meet with the student.  If the complaint is not resolved to the student’s satisfaction, the student can take the complaint to the Chair of the Department of Nutrition and Health Sciences.  If after meeting with the department chair, the complaint is still not resolved to the student’s satisfaction, the student may take the complaint to the Dean of the College of Education and Human Sciences.

 The program will maintain a record of student complaints for a period of seven years, including the resolution of the complaints.  This record will be kept in the main department office.

There will be no retaliation toward any student who files a complaint.  If the student suspects that retaliation has occurred, the same process as utilized for filing a complaint can be followed.
