sTUDENT GRIEVANCE POLICY & PROCEDURE

One of the most important and often neglected components of community life is that of conflict resolution. Conflict is inevitable within any human community. What matters is how we work through opposing perspectives in a gracious and loving manner. The Student Grievance and Complaint Policy at ABC outlines our own biblical and practical approach to conflict resolution.

The Student Grievance Policy provides the structure for students to exercise the right of grievance between and amongst students, as well as the structure to grieve the actions of staff and instructors. The structure may also be applied to Board policy.

Copies of the policy are available in the Community Life Guide (for students in the day program) and the PACE Student Handbook (for students in the PACE program). Students may also visit the Student Development Director, the PACE office, the main office, or the Learning Resource Centre to access this policy.

The grievance process can be summarized is as follows:

Go directly to the person with whom you have conflict
Seek friendly intervention or mediation
Request decision by an appointed group or arbitration

Our desire is that the majority of grievances will be resolved by prayerfully living out step one.
