The Office of Appeals, Discipline and Faculty Grievances
The Office of Appeals, Discipline and Faculty Grievances (ADFG) is neutral, and is responsible for the management of the administration of the Governing Council’s quasi-judicial processes and functions, by providing governance, judicial and registrarial support for these bodies and associated processes.
There are currently 15 quasi-judicial processes our Office supports, and our role differs for each process. These quasi-judicial processes span all three campuses at the University.
For more information about our processes and role and how to contact us, please click About the ADFG Office.
HEARINGS DURING COVID-19:
ADFG Office staff continue to adhere to all University directives, including working remotely, as well as all public health directives, including those related to social distancing. As we continue to work remotely for the foreseeable future, we will continue to adapt our processes as necessary.
Due to the limitations caused by the pandemic, the University Tribunal's Rules of Practice and Procedure have been amended. Electronic hearings (i.e. hearings held virtually via Zoom) are now the default method of hearing before the University Tribunal.
Please visit the specific Process webpage for more information.
