The Provost appoints members of the faculty and staff to serve as University Intercessors. The role of the Intercessors is to engage in an informal process to respond to questions and concerns about work or school issues expressed by any member of the University community. Intercessors work with faculty, staff, and students and their school or department to suggest outcomes and resolutions that adhere to established University policies and procedures, as well as state and federal law. Intercessors serve as an informal resource to provide guidance and education on University policy related to harassment and discrimination.
Individuals wishing to utilize a more formal process to pursue resolution of a situation based on an allegation of discrimination or harassment, including sexual harassment, may access the University's Formal Grievance Procedures at any time. Regardless of whether the Complainant is a faculty or staff member or a graduate or undergraduate student, when filing a complaint of discrimination, harassment, or sexual harassment under Policy 106:
