Student Service Contacts for Problem Resolution

Occasionally a student encounters a problem that s/he is not able to resolve with his or her mentor or an administrative office. Staff is available at each center and most programs to assist students. These staff members investigate and facilitate the resolution of student complaints. The role is not one of an advocate for either party, but rather as a neutral investigator of the complaint.

For more information on college policies, see the Policies and Procedures section of this site, which includes the policies and procedures for academic appeals, student conduct, grievance and accommodations for students with disabilities.

Students should contact the person listed for their home region.
