Franciscan University of Steubenville and Student Academic Support Services (SASS) support you in your right to file a grievance when you believe you have been denied equal access in the form of appropriate accommodations, modifications, auxiliary aids, or effective communication or suffered discrimination as described in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990/ADA Amendment Act of 2008, or the Ohio Administrative Code 4112-5-09 Discrimination against persons with disabilities in institutions of higher education.
In order to expedite the resolution, the following procedure should be followed:
A complainant is not required by law to use the institutional grievance procedure before filing a complaint with The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) of the U.S. Department of Education. However, both the OCR and Franciscan University encourage using internal grievance procedures before filing a complaint with OCR.
Retaliation against any person who files a complaint of alleged discrimination, participates in an investigation, or opposes a discriminatory education practice or policy is prohibited under University policy and by state and federal law.
