RTT Student Concerns

Chain of Communication for Student Concerns

If a student perceives an issue, the Chain of Communication is as follows:

1. The student will discuss the issue with the involved faculty or clinical instructor. If the student feels the issue is not resolved, the student can proceed to step 2.

2. The student and involved faculty member will meet with the RTT Program Director. If the student feels the issue is not resolved at this step, the student can proceed to step 3

3. The student will discuss the issue with the Senior Program Director of Nursing and Allied Health with the Program Director and/or faculty personnel. If the student feels the issue is not resolved at this step, the student can proceed to step 4.

4. If a resolution is not obtained in the Respiratory Therapy Department, the chain of communication continues by following the University’s Policy Register 8-01.4 administrative policy and procedures for student complaints.

(Nonacademic grievance policy is located in the Policy Register 4 – 02.102)

Students are encouraged to use the Office of the Student Ombuds as a resource in assisting with any University-related concerns, grievance, or appeal.  http://www.kent.edu/emsa/ombuds.cfm
