Student Assessments and Processes
It is important to the University of Missouri-St. Louis faculty and staff that students have the best possible experience on campus. If any student experiences a problem with faculty or staff members that has not been resolved through normal campus processes, he or she is encouraged to contact the Office of Academic Integrity (Student Rights and Responsibilities) for assistance in resolving the issue.
These problems may include, but are not limited to:
- A complaint that has not been resolved,
- An issue related to intellectual diversity and academic freedom, or
- Any other concerns that may hinder the students academic or co-curricular performance and well being.
The role of this office at the University of Missouri-St. Louis is to provide an opportunity for students to express complaints or concerns about instructors or offices on campus. The office maintains a record of all complaints and reports annually to the Provost detailing the number of complaints, the nature of the complaints, the number resolved, and the resolutions.
The office will work with the student to resolve the issue or complaint. There are many strategies to address student concerns:
- Advising the student of his or her options,
- Conducting an inquiry with the department chair or college dean,
- Conferring with other offices or units on campus,
- Consulting the faculty instructor, and/or
- Taking necessary actions to resolve the issue.
The office will advise the Provost concerning any issue in which intervention by the Provost or other campus officials is needed.
If you wish to contact the office, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Dr. Tanisha Stevens in the Office of the Provost at 314-516-5304.
