It is expected that students and faculty will use their normal contacts in class and individual conferences to resolve any differences that may arise in their work together. Where faculty or students find such normal channels fail to resolve differences that will affect the status of the student, either or both may ask for consideration of such differences by the Director of the DSW Program. The decision of the DSW Director shall stand, unless either or both parties wish to appeal the decision further. If there is such an appeal, the following policies and procedures will prevail:
A written appeal of the DSW Director’s decision may be made through the Director to the Dean of the School of Social Policy and Practice who will determine if a review by the Committee on Academic Standing or the Grievance Committee is warranted.
