D175 - 2/13/2019
In 2015 and 2016, changes were made to the Student Grievance Procedures to align them with the UNM Administrative Policy 2740 “Sexual Misconduct.” These changes resulted in discrepancies between Policy D175 in the Faculty Handbook and the Student Grievance Procedures posted in the Pathfinder. The Department of Justice requested that both documents be reviewed and brought into alignment. The Faculty Senate Policy Committee appointed a task force consisting of faculty, student, and administrative representatives to review and recommend changes to D175. Because Policy D176 addresses graduate student grievances, Policy D175 was restructured to apply only undergraduate students. The revised policy also clarifies appeal rights, and deletes Dean of Student procedures which will be published in the Pathfinder as a supplement to Policy D175. When the revision to D175 is approved, the Student Grievance Procedures posted by Dean of Students will be aligned with D175.
