Student Concerns and Grievances

The Department of African American Studies is committed to a productive and positive classroom environment. If a student is concerned about an incident, comment, or exchange in the classroom, please reach out directly to the professor involved. We, the faculty of African American Studies, welcome this feedback, and we take student concerns very seriously. We will listen, be non-defensive, and address the situation. If the concern is not resolved, or if the student feels uncomfortable pressing the matter with professor, then we strongly encourage the student to bring the issue to the department chair or DUS. If the matter remains unresolved after talking to the chair or DUS, then the student should bring the issue to the dean of the college.
