The Kinesiology Co-op Program has a responsibility to provide fair and equitable procedures for the lodging and hearing of student complaints or concerns arising from Program regulations, policies and actions. Students who wish to contest a resolution can do so by following the three sequential steps of the Kinesiology Co-op Student Appeal Procedure.
- Students who are not satisfied with a decision pertaining to the Program should initially attempt to resolve their concerns informally by requesting a meeting with the Co-op Coordinator.
- If a student is not satisfied with the decision from the Co-op Coordinator, the student may appeal the decision in writing to the Senior Associate Director, School of Kinesiology. All written documentation related to the issue must also be submitted. A copy of the appeal must be sent to the Co-op Coordinator who made the original decision or ruling. The Co-op Coordinator may file a written response to the appeal to the Senior Associate Director and the appellant. The Senior Associate Director may request additional written submissions and/or may invite the student and the Co-op Coordinator to make oral submissions. The Senior Associate Director shall communicate his/her decision in writing to the student and the Co-op Coordinator within a reasonable time frame.
- If the student is not satisfied with the decision by the Senior Associate Director, the student may appeal to the Director of the School of Kinesiology, by submitting a meeting request to the Senior Associate Director. The Senior Associate Director will arrange a convenient time for the Director, the appellant and him/herself. The Director shall communicate the final decision of the appeal process in writing to the student, Co-op Coordinator and Senior Associate Director within a reasonable time frame.
