Academic Advising

Academic advising at the University of Louisville promotes a teaching and learning partnership dedicated to student success. It is to your advantage to meet with your academic advisor at least once a semester and to know your advisor well. Don't wait for peak times like early registration to make an advising appointment; you can meet with an advisor throughout the year. The advising experience will provide you with the information and skills necessary to make intelligent, informed decisions throughout your college career. Your academic advisor can assist you in connecting with valuable resources on campus. Your academic advisor will guide you and teach you about career choices, degree requirements, university policies and procedures, and how to be a successful student. It is your responsibility to take the lead in developing a relationship with your advisor by communicating with your advisor on a regular basis.

Academic Grievance Procedure

Section 1: Introduction

This procedure is designed to provide fair means of dealing with student complaints regarding a specific action or decision made by the faculty or a faculty member. Students who believe they have been treated unfairly, discriminated against, or have had their rights abridged may initiate a grievance (The Redbook, Section 6.8.1).

The Unit Academic Grievance Committee has the power to hear all grievances involving academic matters other than substantive grade appeals. Academic matters are defined as those concerning instructional activities, research activities, activities closely related to either of these functions, or decisions involving instruction or affecting academic freedom (The Redbook, Section 6.8.3). The Unit Academic Grievance Committee may review allegations that a course grade has resulted from an unfair procedure. However, the committee should not substitute its judgment on their merits as an evaluation of academic performance. Where the dean concurs that procedural irregularities have occurred, the dean shall consult with an appropriate faculty committee as to the grade to be recorded on the student's official transcript.

To assist the student, a Student Grievance Officer is provided, who is responsible for informing students of their rights and obligations under the grievance procedure and especially the deadlines that have been established. The Student Grievance Officer shall seek to resolve informally as many grievances as possible (The Redbook, Section 6.8.2).

Students are encouraged to seek the assistance of the Student Grievance Officer at any stage of the grievance process.

Each unit shall establish an Academic Grievance Committee to carry out the procedures described below.

To pursue a grievance concerning academic matters within the academic unit, the following steps of the grievance procedure should be observed:

  1. The student should first discuss the matter with the person involved and attempt to resolve the grievance through informal discussion.
  2. If there is no resolution, the student should discuss the matter with that person's supervisor or the person to whom such person reports, who should attempt to mediate a resolution.
  3. If the student has not been able to obtain a resolution, he or she may request the Student Grievance Officer (S.G.O.) to attempt informal mediation of the problem.
  4. If the matter has not been satisfactorily resolved through the informal process, the student shall submit a written statement of the grievance to the Unit Academic Grievance Committee through the Office of the Dean. The statement shall contain -
    a. A brief narrative of the condition giving rise to the grievance;
    b. designation of the parties involved; and
    c. statement of the remedy requested.

  1. Contact the student and the Student Grievance Officer to obtain assurance that all steps of the above informal process were completed and that those issues in the statement were discussed at all levels.
  2. Notify the parties named in the statement of the grievance naming them; and send a copy of the statement to the named parties and to all committee members.
  3. Notify the grievant and the respondent of the right to challenge committee members for cause, and request early notification of challengers to expedite the grievance procedure. Included in this notification will be a list of the names of all current, regular committee members.
  4. Meet within twenty working days after receiving the written statement of any grievance and recommend to the dean of the unit whether sufficient grounds exist to accept a case for hearing. The committee shall hear the case when the dean concurs. The committee shall notify, in writing, all persons directly involved as to the reasons for its recommendation.
  5. The action of the grievance committee as to whether to grant a hearing when accepted by the dean of the unit shall be final and binding on all parties except when subject to the condition of appeal.
  6. If a hearing will be held, notify in writing all the parties involved, including any witnesses, of the date, time and place of the hearing at least ten days prior to the hearing date (which shall be within 30 working days of receipt of the written grievance).
  7. Request in writing from all parties involved any pertinent material deemed necessary for review by the committee prior to the hearing. These materials, and any additional materials either party chooses to submit, must be submitted to the committee not later than four days prior to the hearing. Any person named in a grievance may submit a written statement to the committee outlining issues from that person's perspective.
  8. Maintain confidentiality throughout the entire grievance process. All communications among the committee, the grievant(s), and the person(s) named in the statement of grievance will be confidential.

Section 4: Hearing Process

All hearings conducted by the Unit Academic Grievance Committee shall be conducted confidentially in the following manner:

  1. The grievant(s) and the respondent(s) must be present during the information gathering portion of the hearing. Witnesses will be available and will be called when needed. The committee reserves the right to allow the presence of a secretary or a technical assistant.
  2. All statements during the information-exchange phase of the hearing will be tape recorded. This record will be preserved in the University Archives for a minimum of five years and shall be confidential.
  3. Any committee member may question any of the participants at the hearing.
  4. The grievant will present his or her statements and/or witnesses to the committee.
  5. The respondent will have the opportunity to question the grievant(s) and the witnesses about their statements.
  6. The respondent will present his or her statements and/or witnesses to the committee.
  7. The grievant will have the opportunity to question the respondent(s) about their statements.
  8. After all information is exchanged, all persons except the committee members and the recording secretary will leave the committee room. The grievant(s), the respondent(s), and the witnesses will continue to be available to the committee should further information be needed.
  9. The committee will meet in closed session to decide upon its recommendation(s) to the dean.
  10. The committee shall submit its report with recommendation(s) and reasons for the recommendation(s), to the grievant(s), the respondent(s), and the dean. If the grievance directly involves the dean the report and recommendation(s) of the Unit Academic Grievance Committee shall be referred for decision to the appropriate academic vice president (now referred to as the University Provost).
  11. The student's grievance will not be included as part of the student's record, unless it results in a change in student status or the student voluntarily inserts the information.
  12. Until the grievance is resolved, the student may continue the natural academic progression through the academic unit subject to the requirements of Article 6.6, Academic Review. Advancement, Probation, and Dismissal of Students, and Article 6.7, Nonacademic Disciplinary Procedures, of The Redbook.

Section 5: Decision

The dean shall approve or reject the committee's recommendation(s) within 28 days after receiving it (them). If decision of the dean is not in accord with the committee's recommendation(s), the dean shall state the reasons for that decision, in writing, to all persons directly involved in the grievance and to the committee. The dean shall then take appropriate action to implement his or her decision after the time for appeal has elapsed.

Section 6: Rehearing

A grievance committee, within 21 days after delivery of its report, may be petitioned to reconsider its decision upon the basis of evidence of misrepresentation of material facts or upon the basis of newly discovered evidence clearly not available at the original hearing.

Section 7: Appeal

Any party to the grievance may appeal to the University Student Grievance Committee within 21 days from the date of the final decision of the dean if the dean's decision does not concur with the recommendation of the grievance committee.

Additional information can be found in The Redbook.

ADA Guidelines for Students with Disabilities

The University of Louisville is committed to equal opportunity and challenge for all academically qualified students and does not discriminate on the basis of disability. Support services and accommodations are available to encourage students with disabilities to take full advantage of the University's educational, social, and cultural opportunities.

The Disability Resource Center (Stevenson Hall, 852-6938) is responsible for the coordination of programs and services for qualified applicants for admission and enrolled students with disabilities. Visit the Disability Resource Center website. Determination of eligibility for services and appropriate accommodations is determined by staff of the Disability Resource Center after review of documentation of disability.

As needed, DRC staff will discuss the student's request for services with the student to determine appropriate accommodations and/or consult with the faculty member or other involved office regarding the request. When there is any question about the appropriateness of the student's requested accommodation, the DRC staff member will inform the student of the decision.

Questions or concerns related to policies and procedures not resolved with individual DRC staff should first be discussed informally with the Director of DRC and then be subject to informal consultation with the Dean of Students. Matters not resolved informally may be formally presented by the student to the ADA Compliance Officer (Staff Development and Employee Relations Office; 852-6536 or 852-6538). A complaint should be filed within 180 days after the complainant becomes aware of the alleged violation. Formal appeals include a written statement regarding the nature of the complaint, results of the informal meetings, and requested resolution. All formal appeals will be promptly investigated and a decision will be rendered within 60 working days of the date of receipt. Please contact the Staff Development and Employee Relations Office for additional information on the grievance procedure.

Applying for and Requesting Support Services

Referrals - Students and potential students are referred to DRC by publications such as U of L application packets, schedules of classes and catalogs. Students are referred by community agency personnel, U of L faculty and staff and other students, high school counselors, health care professionals, family members and others. Referrals are made verbally or in writing. Referrals should be routed to the appropriate coordinator or to the Director when DRC staff have questions regarding the appropriate staff member to work with a student.

Submitting Documentation of Disability

All students seeking assistance from DRC must disclose the presence of a disability. In most cases, the student will be asked to submit documentation of disability for review by the appropriate DRC staff person. Upon receipt and review of the documentation, an intake appointment will be scheduled. Contact the Disability Resource Center for additional information about guidelines for diagnostic criteria.

Intake Appointment

After review of documentation, the appropriate coordinator will contact the student for an intake appointment. At this meeting, the student's eligibility for support services and anticipated accommodations will be discussed. Policies and procedures regarding specific support services, such as letters for faculty, exam accommodation, supplemental note-taking service, etc., will be discussed.

Requesting Specific Support Services

It is the responsibility of the student to request specific support services each semester. Please remember that services can generally occur only after submission of appropriate documentation, review by the coordinator, determination of eligibility for specific services, and request by student for specific services.

Timeliness of Requests

Submission of service requests for instructor letters, exam accommodation, and supplemental note-taking services should generally be submitted no later than two weeks prior to beginning of term. Some services (such as interpreter service and taped textbooks) require much more notice. Please refer to policies and procedures for specific services such as reader service, interpreter service, for additional information on timeliness of requests. Although DRC staff will make reasonable effort to accommodate all requests, untimely requests may result in delay of service.

Academic Adjustments

Academic requirements will be modified, as necessary, to ensure that they do not discriminate against qualified applicants or currently enrolled students with disabilities. At the student's request, DRC staff recommend academic adjustments in compliance with legal mandates. Academic requirements that are essential to programs of instruction are not considered discriminatory.

Modifications shall not affect the substance of the educational programs or compromise educational standards. Students can ask the appropriate DRC staff member to provide a memo recommending academic adjustments for each class in which the student is enrolled. Because of the diversity of individual needs relating to disabilities and the uniqueness of each class, students must discuss their requests for course modifications.

Drug-Free Schools and Crime Awareness, Campus Security Information Report 1993, and Communities Act Amendments of 1989

The Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations (commonly called Part 86 of EDGAR) require that higher education institutions receiving any federal funding must notify each student and employee annually of its program to prevent the illicit use of drugs and the abuse of alcohol by students and employees.

The following is the University of Louisville's Drug-Free Schools Notice: We, at the University of Louisville, have begun programs in the past few years to combat the misuse and abuse of alcohol and other chemical substances. We realize, however, that only through a concerted effort by all, can we make any major strides in preventing substance abuse.

Drug-Free Schools Notice

As required by the Federal Drug Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989, you are hereby notified by the University of Louisville that on University premises or at University sponsored activities, the following acts are prohibited:

  1. distribution, possession, or use of any illegal drug or controlled substance without legal authorization;
  2. providing alcoholic beverages to individuals under 21 years of age, or possession of alcoholic beverages by individuals under 21 years of age; or
  3. illegal possession of an open container of an alcoholic beverage, public intoxication, driving while intoxicated, and drinking alcoholic beverages in an unlicensed public place.

In addition to imposition of disciplinary sanctions under University procedures including suspension or separation from the University for such acts, students or employees may face prosecution and imprisonment under Federal and Kentucky laws which make such acts felony and misdemeanor crimes.

The Code of Student Conduct lists details of offenses and disciplines for students. Staff may be disciplined under Section 1 1.1 of the Staff Handbook. Faculty may be disciplined by Deans per Redbook Sections 4.5.3 or 3.2.2 with review per 4.4 for sanctions less than dismissal or suspension for one year.

The health risks associated with the misuse and abuse of mind altering drugs, including controlled substances and alcohol, include but are not limited to: physical and psychological dependence; damage to the brain, pancreas, kidneys and lungs; high blood pressure, heart attacks, and strokes; ulcers; birth defects; a diminished immune system; and death.

The Counseling Center and Student Health Services provide assessment and referral services to University students, as well as serving as an alcohol and other drug information/education resources center.

Guidelines for Consumption of Alcoholic Beverages for Recognized Student Organizations

Return To Top Of Page -- Disclaimer

Hazing and Initiation Activities Policy

Revised: August 11, 2011

The University is dedicated to promoting a safe and healthy campus environment for its students, faculty, staff, and visitors. As such, the University does not tolerate hazing.

As required by KRS 164.375, the University has adopted a policy prohibiting hazing activities that applies to the conduct of students, faculty and staff, as well as visitors, other licensees and invitees on campus.

The term "hazing" means any action or situation which recklessly or intentionally endangers mental or physical health; creates an atmosphere of servitude; involves dangerous, demeaning or ridiculing activities; involves the forced consumption of liquor or drugs; for the purpose of initiation, admission into, affiliation with, or as a condition of continued membership in a group or organization.

An individual or group will have engaged in prohibited conduct if any of the following behavior occurs: Hazing, encouraging, facilitating or allowing hazing by any organization or by any individual on behalf of an organization or group (recognized or not recognized by the university), or visitor within the University of Louisville community. The express or implied consent of the individual will not be a defense. Apathy or acquiescence in the presence of hazing is not a neutral act; it is a violation of this policy.

Violation of this policy by any student or member of the University faculty or staff, will result in disciplinary action under the provision of the Redbook, and may include dismissal from the University.
Possible sanctions for violating the hazing policy for individual students resulting from the University conduct process can range from a reprimand to disciplinary expulsion depending on the severity of the violation. Possible sanctions for student organizations or groups include suspension or restriction from University property or revocation of organization and/or charter recognition. Any organization which recklessly or intentionally endangers mental or physical health or forces consumption of liquor or drugs for the purpose of initiation into or affiliation with any organization shall be excluded from University campuses for a minimum of two years as determined by the President or his/her designee. Possible sanctions for faculty and staff range from an oral warning to termination of employment.

Violations of this policy are subject to referral to appropriate University, and law enforcement officials, as well as to regional and national affiliated offices, for action or prosecution.

Nothing contained in this section is intended to, nor shall be construed to, limit or restrict freedom of speech or peaceful assembly.

      Respect for Intellectual Property Rights

      The University of Louisville recognizes that respect for intellectual labor and creativity is vital to academic discourse and enterprise. The policy of the University of Louisville is to respect the intellectual property rights of others and to protect the intellectual property rights of the University. U of L encourages its faculty, staff, and students to respect the intellectual property rights of others and to abide by applicable intellectual property laws, including copyright law. U of L forbids the use or copying without the permission or authorization of the owner, unless such use of copying falls within the scope of "fair use" as outlined in United States copyright law. Violations of authorial integrity (including plagiarism), invasion of privacy, inappropriate use of (or access to) University technology resources, and intellectual property law (e.g., copyright, patent, trademark) violations, may be grounds for discipline or legal action against members of the university community. Personal legal liability may result from violation of intellectual property laws.

      The University of Louisville adopted a revised Intellectual Property Policy in July 2005 which replaced former Intellectual Property policies. This revised policy covers intellectual property created by students. Students who independently create intellectual property arising out of their participation in programs of study at U of L and that do not result from their employment by U of L retain the legal rights to that intellectual property. Intellectual property created by students through the use of specialized resources (e.g. resources beyond what is typically made available to students), or in connection with their employment by U of L, is owned by the University of Louisville Research Foundation, Inc. For details on this policy, see http://louisville.edu/research/offices/technology-transfer/ip-policy.html accessible via the Executive Vice President for Research and Innovation's web pages.

      Use of Intellectual Property

      (e.g., Multimedia, Software, Documentation, and Other Content)

      The University of Louisville encourages respect for the intellectual property rights of others and expects you to abide by applicable intellectual property laws (e.g., copyright, trademark, patent) and licensing agreements, which control the use of intellectual property. This intellectual property may include software, documentation, multimedia, and other content (for example: digital databases, pictures/graphics, movies/videos, music/sound recordings in multiple formats such as GIF, JPEG, MPEG, MP3). U of L neither condones nor authorizes the making of copies in violation of U.S. copyright law (Title 17, U.S. Code) or other applicable law and neither condones nor authorizes the making of copies in violation of a binding licensing agreement. Such conduct is considered a violation of University policy and subjects the person to loss of computer/technology usage privileges and to appropriate disciplinary action at the University as well as any applicable penalty, fine, and/or imprisonment for violating the law.

      Most multimedia, pictures/graphics, movies/videos, music/sound recordings, software and documentation are protected by copyright law. As such it is illegal to copy or distribute such material or other copyrighted content without the permission of the copyright holder or unless the copying/distribution meets the legal test for "fair use" under the U.S. copyright law. It is also illegal to tamper with or circumvent copyright management information. (See 17 U.S.C. 1201 and 1202).

      Lack of copy-protection does NOT constitute permission to copy. If you have an authorized (or legal) copy of software, you may make an archival copy of the software for backup purposes. If you transfer the original to someone else, the backup copy should also be given with the original or destroyed.

      The Internet and the web make intellectual property readily available. Don't assume that because it is available on the web that you can download it and use if freely. A large portion of material on the web is copyrighted (yes, even without the copyright symbol). Plus there are often other contractual or licensing restrictions on its use.

      "Fair use" depends heavily on the particular facts of the situation. Use of materials for classroom assignments often meets the fair use criteria. "Fair use" guidelines exist for some situations. However, if you are doing something outside these guidelines, you are advised to check copyright resources (such as those available via the URL which follows) or check with someone knowledgeable about "fair use" criteria. For information about copyright law and "fair use" click on "Copyright Resources" at http://www.louisville.edu/it/policies. To obtain copyright permission for university business, see http://php.louisville.edu/advancement/ocm/identity/.

      You are encouraged to keep appropriate records to show that you have permission to use the intellectual property or that your copy is an authorized or legal copy. Appropriate records include the original disks containing the software/digital content and license agreement, proof of purchase (e.g., receipt from campus bookstore, credit card receipt/statement), original manual with serial number of product, authorization codes in conjunction with other proof of purchase or permission to use, signed permission letters, or e-mail's confirming that your use is authorized.

It will also be one of very few student recreation centers in the nation to provide an indoor golf simulator. Next to the center will be an outdoor turf field that will be open for walk-up use most of the day. When this move takes place, the current facilities in the Swain Student Activities Center will close for renovation.

      Non-Academic Grievance Procedure

      Section 1: Introduction

      This procedure has been designed to provide a fair means of dealing with non-academic complaints regarding a specific decision, action or inaction of any member of the University community. The Student Non-Academic Grievance Committee shall have the power to hear all grievances other than those involving University housing, matters affecting students as a class, student disciplinary decisions, instructional activities, research activities, academic freedom, or faculty professional misconduct. Faculty professional misconduct is conduct by a faculty member which violates the statement on professional ethics adopted by the Faculty Senate. Students who believe they have been treated unfairly, discriminated against or have had their rights abridged in other areas of the University may initiate a grievance.

      To assist the student, a Student Grievance Officer is provided who is responsible for informing students of their rights and obligations under the grievance procedure, and especially the deadlines that have been established. The Student Grievance Officer shall seek to resolve informally as many grievances as possible. Students are encouraged to seek the assistance of the Student Grievance Officer at any stage of the grievance process.

      Section 2: Preliminary Steps

      To resolve a grievance concerning non-academic matters within the University, the following steps of the grievance procedure shall be observed:

      1. The student should first discuss the matter with the person involved and attempt to resolve the grievance through informal discussion.
      2. If there is no resolution, the student should discuss the matter with the person's supervisor or the individual to whom such person reports, who should attempt to mediate a resolution.
      3. If the student still has not been able to obtain a resolution, that student may request the Student Grievance Officer to assist in the informal resolution of the grievance.
      4. If the matter has not been satisfactorily resolved through the informal process, the Student Grievance Officer should notify the appropriate vice president or the other administrators designated by the President as having a role comparable to that of a vice president that a grievance is pending in their area of responsibility. The Grievance Officer is also responsible for informing the student of his or her rights and obligations under the grievance procedures and especially the deadlines which have been established.
      5. The student shall submit a written statement of the grievance to the Non-Academic Grievance Committee through the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs within fourteen (14) days after contacting the Student Grievance Officer. The statement shall contain: 1) A brief narrative of the condition giving rise to the grievance, which includes dates, time and location when the grievance took place; 2) A designation of the parties involved; and 3) A statement of the remedy requested.

      Section 3: Committee Action

      Upon receipt of the written statement, the Non-Academic Grievance Committee shall:

      1. Contact the student and the Student Grievance Officer to obtain assurance that all steps of the informal process were completed and that those issues in the statement were discussed at all levels in the informal process.
      2. Notify the parties named in the statement by first-class U.S. Mail that they are parties to a student grievance and provide the parties at least ten (10) days prior notice of the time and place when the hearing will be held. Attached to the notice should be a copy of the formal statement of grievance.
      3. Meet no sooner than ten (10) calendar days, but no later than twenty (20) calendar days after receiving the written statement in order to review the facts of the grievance and render a decision as to whether sufficient grounds are present to warrant a hearing. Careful consideration should be given to the recommendations of the Student Grievance Officer, which shall be presented to the Committee prior to when it meets to determine whether sufficient grounds exist.
      4. If the Grievance Committee decides that there is not sufficient grounds to accept a case for hearing, it shall notify all persons directly involved, in writing, as to the reason for its action. The decision of the Grievance Committee as to the grounds for acceptance for the hearing shall be final and binding on all parties except when subject to conditions of appeal.
      5. If a hearing will be held, notification, in writing, to all parties involved, including any witnesses, must be completed. This notification should provide date, time and place of the hearing.
      6. Notify, in writing, alternate members of the Grievance Committee, that a hearing has been scheduled, and of the date and time of the hearing; thus placing these members on call should a challenge occur.
      7. Request, in writing, from all parties involved any pertinent material deemed necessary for review by the Committee prior to the hearing. These materials, plus any additional materials either party chooses to submit, must be submitted to the Committee no later than four (4) days prior to the hearing. The Committee should also request that the person(s) named in the grievance submit a written statement to the Committee outlining issues from their perspective.
      8. Notify the grievant and respondent of their right to challenge Committee members for cause, and request early notification of challenge(s) to expedite the grievance procedure.
      9. Notify the grievant(s) and respondent(s) of their right to be accompanied by an advisor. The Committee shall be notified by all parties, in writing, six (6) days in advance of the hearing, of each party's intent to be or not to be accompanied by an advisor. The notice of intent to bring an advisor shall include the advisor's name, occupation and relationship to the party submitting the notice. The Committee shall notify each party involved of the other's intent to be or not to be accompanied by an advisor, and the name of the advisor, their occupation and relationship, immediately upon receipt of this information. Upon notification of the other party's plans, both grievant(s) and respondent(s) shall have 48 hours to change their plans concerning the presence of an advisor. The final notice of intent shall be submitted to the Committee, in writing, within 48 hours, and shall be final and binding.
      10. All communications among the Committee, the grievant(s) and person(s) named in the statement of the grievance shall be confidential. Every effort will be made by Committee members to maintain confidentiality throughout the entire process.

      All hearings conducted by the Non-Academic Grievance Committee, shall be conducted confidentially in the following manner:

      1. The grievant(s) and respondent(s) must be present during the information gathering portion of the hearing. Witnesses will be available and called when needed. The Committee reserves the right to allow the presence of a secretary or technical assistant for the purposes of keeping an adequate record.
      2. All statements during the information exchange phase of the hearing will be tape recorded. This record will be preserved by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and the University Archives for a minimum of five (5) years and shall remain confidential.
      3. The advisor will serve in an advisory capacity and shall not address the Committee individually or as a whole, unless requested to do so by the Committee.
      4. Any Committee member may question any of the participants of the hearing.
      5. The grievant will present his/her statements and/or witnesses to the Committee.
      6. The respondent will have the opportunity to question the grievant and witnesses about their statements.
      7. Following the grievant's presentation and appropriate cross-examination, the respondent will present his or her statements and/or witnesses to the Committee.
      8. The grievant will have the opportunity to question the respondent and/or witnesses about their statements.
      9. After all information is exchanged, all persons, other than the Committee members and the recording secretary, will leave the committee room. The grievant, respondent, advisors and witnesses will continue to be available to the Committee should further information be needed.
      10. The Committee will meet in closed session to decide upon its recommendation(s) to the Vice President for Student Affairs.
      11. The Committee shall submit its report within seven (7) days after the conclusion of the hearing with recommendations and reasons for the recommendation to the grievant, respondent, and Vice President for Student Affairs. If the grievance directly involves the Vice President of Student Affairs, the report of the Committee shall be sent directly to the Office of the President.
      12. The student grievance will not be included as part of the student's record unless it results in a change of the student's status or the student voluntarily inserts the information.

      Section 5: Decision

      The Vice President for Student Affairs shall approve or reject the Committee's recommendation within twenty-three (23) days after it is received. If the decision of the Vice President for Student Affairs is not in accordance with the Committee's recommendation, a written statement outlining the reasons for that decision should be sent to all persons directly involved in the grievance and to the Committee.

      The Vice President for Student Affairs shall then take appropriate action to implement the decision. When the desired remedy lies outside the jurisdiction of the Vice President for Student Affairs, the Vice President shall forward the decision to the appropriate vice president or an administrator designated by the President as having a role comparable to that of a vice president for appropriate action. If the recommended remedy is not implemented, the responsible administrator shall state the reasons, in writing, to the Vice President for Student Affairs and all persons directly involved in the grievance.

      When the appropriate vice president or administrator designated by the President as having a role comparable to that of a vice president determines that the student's grievance involves professional misconduct, that administrator shall send the report of the Committee with any comments to the committee with jurisdiction over such professional misconduct. In such cases, the responsible administrator shall provide the student with a timely remedy that the administrator has determined to be appropriate to the extent required by the facts of the case.

      Section 6: Rehearing

      The Grievance Committee, within twenty-one (21) days after the delivery of its recommendation, may be petitioned to reconsider its decision based upon evidence of misrepresentation of material facts or newly discovered evidence clearly not available at the original hearing.

      Any party directly involved in a grievance may appeal to the University Student Grievance Committee within twenty-one (21) days from the date of the final decision of the Vice President for Student Affairs or other vice presidents/administrators designated by the President as having a role comparable to that of a vice president which does not implement the remedy in concurrence with the recommendation of a grievance committee.

      Non-Discrimination Statement

      The University of Louisville is committed to and will provide equality of educational and employment opportunity for all persons regardless of race, sex, age, color, national origin, ethnicity, creed, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender, pregnancy, or veteran status - except where sex, age, or ability represent bona fide educational or employment qualifications. Further, the university seeks to promote campus diversity by enrolling and employing a larger number of minorities and women where these groups have historically been and continue to be under-represented within the university in relation to availability and may extend preference in initial employment to such individuals among substantially equally qualified candidates, as well as to veterans and current university employees seeking promotion.

      This affirmation is published in accordance with 41 CFR 60 and is in keeping with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title IX, Education Amendments of 1972 as amended; Executive Order 11246; the Rehabilitation Act of 1973; the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974; the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1988 and Kentucky Statutes.

      To ensure that equal educational and employment opportunity exists throughout the university, a results-oriented equal opportunity/affirmative action program will be implemented to overcome the effects of past discrimination and to eliminate any artificial barriers to educational or employment opportunities for all qualified individuals that may exist in any of our programs. The university aims to achieve, within all areas of the university community, a diverse student body, faculty, and staff capable of providing for excellence in the education of its students and for the enrichment of the university community.

      The University of Louisville reaffirms its commitment to equality of educational and employment opportunity in its relationships with all members of the university community and its commitment to the elimination of any document historical and continuing underutilization of women and minorities among the student body or employee complement. The University of Louisville is committed to this program and is aware that with its implementation, positive benefits will be received from the greater utilization and development of previously underutilized human resources.

      Unlawful Harassment, Personal Discrimination, and Retaliation

      The University of Louisville affirms that students and employees are entitled to an educational and employment environment free from unlawful harassment or personal discrimination and expressly prohibits unlawful harassment (including sexual harassment and sexual abuse) or personal discrimination of any individual among the university community engaged in educational or employment pursuits based on that individual's race, sex, age, color, national origin, ethnicity, creed, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender, pregnancy, or veteran status. Further, no student or employee shall be subject to retaliation for bringing a good faith complaint pertaining to unlawful harassment or personal discrimination or for protesting such behavior directed against another member of the university community.

      Sexual Harassment Policy

      (UofL's administratively approved policy conforms to Title VII @ outgrowth of 1972 Affirmative Action Plan)

      The University of Louisville strives to maintain the campus free of all forms of illegal discrimination as a place of work and study for faculty, staff, and students.

      Sexual harassment is unacceptable and unlawful conduct and will not be tolerated in the workplace and the educational environment.

      Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when (1) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment, or participation in a university-sponsored education program or activity; (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment or academic decisions affecting such an individual; or (3) such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's employment or academic performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or educational environment.

      Faculty, staff, students, and administrators must adhere to this anti-harassment policy. The Provost, Vice Presidents, Deans, Directors, and heads of departments, divisions, and offices are specifically responsible within their particular organizations for publicizing, implementing, and enforcing this policy.

      Retaliation
      Discrimination in any University employment or academic decision against persons who seek redress under the procedures outlines below is prohibited.

      Disciplinary Action
      If an individual is shown to have violated the sexual harassment policy, the individual will be subject, depending upon the seriousness of the violation, to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment or expulsion from the University.

      The Provost, Vice Presidents, Deans, Directors, and heads of departments, divisions, and offices are required to enforce this policy. Failure to do so constitutes a violation subject to separate disciplinary action.

      Procedures
      If you believe you have been a victim of sexual harassment, there are two ways to seek assistance. Procedures are outlined on the HR-Affirmative Action web site at:
