Complaints & Grievances
The Dean of Students Office
welcomes your comments
and will help you to resolve
differences which may occur.
Differences of opinion and
misunderstandings can occur
in any community and the
University of Wisconsin-Green Bay
has procedures which ensure
your right to file a grievance
or make a complaint.
Bias Motivated Incident / Crime Reporting Form
(UW-Green Bay Office of Public Safety)
Students who have grievances related to course grades, conduct
of classes or other course matters should address those
complaints first with the instructor of the course. If the student
is not satisfied with the resolution, the grievance can
then be taken to the chairperson of the appropriate academic
department and, if resolution is not achieved there, the student
may then go to the appropriate academic dean.
Students who have grievances related to University staff
should first address those complaints directly with the individual.
If the student is not satisfied, the grievance can then
be taken to the appropriate supervisor of that department
and, if resolution is not achieved there, the student may then
go to the Dean of Students Office.
Student Government Association (SGA)
SGA is made up of student leader s elected by the student
body. They provide the studentís point of view to university
officials at all levels. If you have an idea for a way to improve
the University or are concerned with the status quo, SGA can
be a good place to start making a difference. Student involvement
is always welcome so if you really want to make a difference,
become a member of SGA or one of it s many branches.
Discrimination and Harassment
Discrimination and harassment have no place on our campus.
The intent of harassment is to create a hostile or demeaning
environment through inappropriate actions. Harassment can
be verbal or physical in nature. Annoyances, threats, demands
for favors or constant calling or e-mailing are just some ways
individuals can be harassed. If a student feels he or she is
being harassed in a general or sexual manner, they should contact
the Dean of Students office at (920) 465-2152.
Discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national
origin, age, disability or sexual orientation is not acceptable
behavior at UW-Green Bay. Our campus works hard to
foster acceptance and understanding of all those who bring
the many different forms of diversity to our campus. If you
observe or are the target of any form of discrimination, please
contact the Dean of Students office at (920) 465-2152 for
assistance in resolving the matter.
Students with Disabilities
Students who have concerns about physical accommodations
or violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act should
contact the ADA Coordinator at (920) 465-2380. If you
need to arrange for academic accommodations, contact Disabilities
Services at (920) 465-2841 to discuss what resources
are available to assist in your academic success.
