Petition and Complaint Processes for Faculty

Grievance Committee: The Grievance Committee is a body appointed by each school with two tenured members of the school elected for a two-year term on a staggered basis.

Institutional Policies: The grievance policy cannot be used to change or delete institutional policies found in other volumes of the Ithaca College Policy Manual. Faculty who have concerns about institutional policies and procedures should discuss these concerns with their chairs or deans or bring them to the attention of the appropriate directors, vice-president, or policy development committee.
