Faculty Grievance Policy
Fair and Reasonable Process for Faculty
As a member of the Southeastern Baptist College faculty, you have the right to fair and reasonable treatment. This treatment extends to all aspects of your relationship with the College, including adjudication of grievances, disciplinary action, and dismissal.
Should you believe that you as a member of the Southeastern Baptist College faculty have been unfairly treated by the College or any administrator thereof, the following process should be utilized in an effort to address the problem.
- Initial contact in most cases should be made with the Academic Dean. Explain your grievance and give opportunity for him to investigate and attempt to bring satisfaction. If your problem is with the Academic Dean, initial contact should be made with the President.
- Should the Academic Dean be unable to settle the situation to your satisfaction, contact the President of the College.
- If attempts by the President to alleviate the problem fail, contact the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the College. His name, address, and phone number can be obtained from the President of the College and/or from the annual yearbook of the Baptist Missionary Association of Mississippi.
The Board of Trustees is the final source of appeals in matters pertaining to the College.
