  • UM-Dearborn's CARE (Concern – Assess – Respond – Evaluate) Team is a campus resource which is available to all faculty, staff and students. This Team is the former Students of Concern Committee. The CARE Team is a cross-campus group of staff and faculty that assesses, refers and/or responds to critical incidents and concerns regarding the health and wellbeing of our students.

    The Team will be mindful of all confidentiality and privacy issues, respectful of students’ rights, and also the rights of others in the community who are affected by a student’s behavior.

    The CARE Team’s mission is to help students succeed while ensuring the safety of the university community as a whole. Its primary purpose is to ensure that our students are fully supported in their academic journey. This is accomplished by helping students connect with internal and external resources in order to resolve potential difficulties. The particular action taken in an individual situation depends upon the circumstances of that student’s needs and the severity of the situation.

  • Student Rights & Code of Conduct

    When students choose to accept admission to the University of Michigan-Dearborn, they accept the rights and responsibilities of membership in the University’s academic and social community. The Student Rights & Code of Conduct identifies non-academic behaviors prohibited by the University. If you believe a student has violated the Code, please contact Amy Finley at (313) 593-5340.

  • All colleges follow the following process when handling student complaints related to grades:

    1. The initial complaint regarding a course grade or assignment within a course shall be directed to the instructor.  

    2. If the instructor determines that no change of grade should occur, the student may request the department chair to mediate a resolution.

    3. If the issue cannot be resolved at the department level, the student may petition the dean’s office requesting a hearing on the matter.

    College Specific Grade Grievance Policies

    The College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters has adopted its own college-wide and department-level grade appeal and change policies. Each department in the college has its own procedure for resolving grade complaints.

    The College of Engineering & Computer Science uses an Academic Grievance Policy to manage student complaints related to grade disputes.

    The College of Business has a Grade Change and Grade Grievance Policy and Procedures.

    The College of Education, Health, and Human Services uses their Grade Change and Grade Grievance policy for resolving grade complaints.

    The university also has a policy related to final course grades which permits students to seek changes by requesting action from their instructor within the five-week period after the term involved. After that a student may initiate a request for a review only through the petition process involving the student's College Academic Standards Committee.
