Student grievance policy revised

As part of Chancellor Mark James’s plan to revise and update MCC’s policies and procedures, the chancellor last week lodged a revision to the student grievance policy with the board of trustees.

The amendment to Board Policy 7.30030 includes a change to both the name and the nature of the policy. Currently named “Student Grievance,” the policy will be renamed “Student Discrimination and Harassment Grievance.” Revisions to the policy will provide a more structured response to student complaints of discrimination and harassment.

The board of trustees is expected to approve the amendment at the April 14 board meeting.

James formed the Chancellor’s Policy Review Committee, composed of members of the three shared governance groups and representatives from the Administrative Center, to undertake a complete updating and revision of MCC’s policies. The student discrimination and harassment grievance policy is the first of many policies expected to be developed and then adopted by the board of trustees.
