Mediation is an option available to an accused student who disagrees with the judgment of the faculty member. The student shall have the right to request the Director of Student Affairs convene a meeting of the student, faculty member, and College Dean. The request for mediation must be made in writing within five business days of receiving notification of the academic dishonesty sanction. The goal of the meeting shall be to help both the student and faculty member understand the point of view of the other. However, the right to determine the grade shall remain with the faculty member. If the student is not satisfied with mediation, he or she may seek an appeal via the Academic Appeal Process.
