Grievance Procedure for Discrimination

Any enrolled student has the right to bring a grievance for alleged discriminatory treatment on the part of any Fordham administrative office, department, or procedure or by any student organization. The student alleging discriminatory treatment has the right to prompt investigation of the charges, resulting in redress of grievances where cause is found. Internal grievance channels provide for the investigation and adjudication of charges by members of the Fordham community. Internal procedures are established for grievances in academic matters and in nonacademic matters. In either instance, in order to be valid, a grievance must be filed within 30 days of the action against which the grievance is directed. Grievances or questions may be directed to the associate dean of graduate studies.
