The Standing Grievance Panel (SGP) is composed of 12 faculty, 12 staff, and no students (12-12-0).
Members of the SGP are available to serve on adjudication panels in cases of alleged discrimination, harassment or sexual misconduct. Once constituted, members of the SGP will be trained, as necessary, on issues related to the college’s Non-Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct Policies, as well as on conducting a hearing process that protects victim safety and promotes accountability.
Six faculty members of the Standing Grievance Panel (one tenured and one non-tenured from each division) are elected by the faculty from a slate of two persons nominated by the Faculty Steering Committee from each category. In addition, six members of the SGP are appointed by the Faculty Steering Committee to ensure that the SGP is representative of the diversity (sex, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, and gender identity or expression) of the faculty at the college. The twelve faculty on the SGP will also consist of at least one faculty member from the Department of Physical Education. Members of the faculty Steering Committee are not eligible to serve on the SGP.
