Clemson University Faculty Dispute Resolution


Clemson University provides four (4) mechanisms for the resolution of conflicts:

  1. If a faculty member believes another faculty member is not complying with the provisions of this Faculty Manual, they may use the Faculty Manual Violation procedure specified in Chapter ii d. 
  2. Other conflicts may be resolved using the Grievance Process. 
    1. The Grievance Process conforms to the South Carolina State Law regarding the grievance processes for state employees in higher education. 
  3. Other conflicts may be resolved through the Formal Complaint Procedure. 
  4. The Office of Access and Equity monitors the University's compliance with all federal, state, and University policies related to equitable treatment and unlawful discrimination. It is one resource for faculty who feel aggrieved for reasons related to unlawful discrimination. 

To fully understand the University grievance process, refer to Chapter V of the Faculty Manual. Please review this information before beginning the grievance process. 

Contact the Ombudsperson, Grievance Coordinator, and Grievance Consultants directly. Grievance Consultants do not advise faculty members or administrators from their respective colleges.
