Student Academic Appointee Board of Review
The BFC annually elects three faculty members to the Student Academic Appointee (SAA) Board of Review. No more than two members of the Board may be elected from a single academic division of the University. At least one member should have previously served on the Faculty Board of Review. Each year, the Graduate and Professional Student Government(GPSG) supplies a list of graduate students for potential membership on the SAA Board of Review. The BFC members select three members from this list to serve on the Board.
An SAA seeking review shall notify the Chair of the SAA Board of Review in writing of their request. The written statement should clearly specify the nature of the complaint, the University person(s) grieved against (i.e. the respondent), the remedy sought, and the reasons why the remedy sought is appropriate. The written statement of complaint must be submitted within 30 business days to the Board from notification to the grievant that the grievance is not able to be resolved through mediation or at the unit/departmental level. The SAA is not required to have mediation prior to submission
to the Board. This time limit may be waived at the discretion of the Board. If the case falls within the Board’s area of jurisdiction, a formal, private, hearing shall be scheduled no sooner than ten days and no longer than 30 business days after the respondent grieved against has received notice of the complaint.
These procedures are intended as a supplement to the provisions for the creation and operation of an SAA Board of Review contained in Document D-XVII and approved by the BFC 9/29/70.
