Examining Grievance Policies Across Campus

In fall 2010, the Council formed an ad-hoc subcommittee to examine faculty grievance policies and procedures in place in the various schools within the university. Noting that the Faculty Hearing Committee, a subcommittee of the Council, examines disputes concerning contract terminations only, the Council began the examination because clear information on resolving disputes that do not fall into that category is not easily or readily available. Professor of Law William Buzbee chairs the subcommittee, which is charged with identifying existing resources and policies at Emory and options for a possible mediation process or ombuds role for faculty. The subcommittee, which aims to report to the Council in mid-fall 2011 with research results and recommendations, includes Cheryl Crowley (Russian and East Asian Languages and Culture), Steve Everett (Music), Sharon Lewis (Psychology, Oxford), and Randy Strahan (Political Science).
