According to University Rules, faculty grievances are distinguished by

  1. Wrongful Dismissal, Non-Granting of Tenure and Non-Renewal of Appointment;

  2. Grievances Related to Illegal Discrimination, Sexual Harassment or Related Retaliation Charges; and

  3. Other Faculty Grievances/Complaints.

If you believe you have cause for grievance in any of the above categories, you are encouraged to make an appointment to speak with the Dean of Faculties for a confidential consultation. The Dean of Faculties will advise you of the resources and options available in your situation. If you decide to file a formal grievance, the Dean of Faculties will advise you on how to proceed. To schedule an informal and confidential consultation, call (979) 845-4274.

Mediation is a voluntary, confidential process and it does not limit or preclude the pursuit of any other action related to a grievance, including the filing of a formal grievance. The Office of Dean of Faculties coordinates mediation services for faculty and administrators. A current list of campus mediators can be found on the Office of the Vice President and Associate Provost for Diversity website.

The Faculty Ombuds Officer is an independent, confidential and impartial resource for faculty to aid them in resolving workplace conflicts. Please visit the Ombuds Officer webpage for contact information.
