Academic Affairs

 

The Student Academic Appeals Board responds to student academic appeals according to procedures outlined for the redress of undergraduate and graduate student grievances in the University Policies and Procedures Manual. With the revision of UNI Policy 12.01 - this committee now supersedes the Graduate Student Academic Appeals Board (Fall 2012).

“The Committee on Committees will hold elections each year to create a pool of ten faculty who can serve as appeal board members in the event a student files a grievance appeal with the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost. The pool shall consist of two faculty representatives who have been duly elected by and from the graduate instructional faculty of each undergraduate college and two representatives who have been elected at large. Faculty members are initially elected for a three-year term and may be elected for additional three-year terms. The faculty members shall be tenured at the rank of assistant professor or higher. The Chair of the Board shall be elected annually from among the pool of ten elected faculty members.

All student members shall be appointed by the Northern Iowa Student Government (NISG) Senate. Student members are appointed for one-year terms; students may be reappointed for additional one year terms. The President of the NISG will notify the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost of the names and contact information of the students who have been appointed at the start of each academic year.”
