What is the process for handling student reports about instructors and what are the possible consequences if an instructor is found to have violated the statute?
The University is required to provide ways for students (and others) to report alleged violations of this statute and a process for responding to such reports (see the University’s proposed regulation for details). Once a report is received, it will be reviewed to determine if an investigation is warranted. If an investigation is initiated, the instructor will be informed and given an opportunity to respond to the allegation. Investigations may include representatives of the instructor’s academic unit and faculty union, as appropriate. In the event that an investigation determines that a violation has occurred, the University shall take prompt action to correct the violation by working with the instructor to modify their instructional activities to be compliant with the statute. If an instructor fails or refuses to comply and correct the violations, then disciplinary actions may be taken.
