Appendix D: Civil Rights Grievances
Civil Rights Grievance Procedures for Students
The University of West Georgia forbids discrimination or harassment in our programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, gender, identity, sexual orientation, disability, age, religion, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by institutional, policy or state, local, or federal law. Students who believe they have been subjected to discrimination or harassment as defined by the United States Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights, should follow the procedure for the Adjudication of Student Conduct Cases outlined in Appendix A of the Student Handbook to report these concerns.
A student who wishes to know more about these procedures or to talk with someone for advice about how to proceed with a complaint may contact the Dean of Students at (678) 839-6423.
