Grievance Policy and Process
All current and prospective stakeholders in the PUC Induction Program are hereby notified of a process for grievance due to the following situations, including but not limited to:
- Dissatisfaction with mentor pairing; see Mentor Candidate Reassignment Policy
- Dissatisfaction with the program
- Appeal of dismissal from the program
- Appeal of non-admittance into the Early Completion Option
If a PUC Induction participant is dissatisfied with the mentor pairing, the program elements, or requirements of the program, the person will direct their concern to the Induction Coordinator in writing and the situation will be explored.
