Re: Report of the Student Grievance and Appeal Committee activities during the 2006-2007 academic year
The Student Grievance and Appeal Committee (SGAC) considered 15 cases brought before the committee in 2006-07.
This is an increase by five in the number of cases considered during the 2005-06 academic year.
The 15 cases considered were in the following categories:
Academic misconduct: 9
Nonacademic misconduct: 3
Grade appeals: 3
The disposition of these cases was:
Appeal denied: 7
Request for hearing denied: 2
Appeal granted: 2
Appeal considered, reduced
sanction recommended: 3
Granted request for new hearing: 1
In addition, the SGAC solicited five volunteers to serve as outside members on six separate unit-level grade appeal committees (one volunteer served twice).
