Student Concerns and Complaints

Drexel University believes that students should be made aware of how to file a complaint for perceived violations of rules, policies, civility or established practice by university employees or fellow students should that become necessary. Mindful of that pledge the university is committed to the development and maintenance of processes for the good faith review and resolution of student complaints that will:

  • Encourage resolution of alleged violations using prescribed/informal procedures at the unit level;
  • Allow for a resolution mechanism if not resolved informally within the unit; and
  • Facilitate the understanding that once the final decision has been rendered, it is not subject to further appeal within the university.

It is the university’s commitment that retaliation against any individual who has filed a complaint, or who has cooperated in the investigation of a complaint, is unlawful and in violation of Drexel University policy. 

Drexel University requires that before a student files a formal complaint, they follow the procedure described above in seeking an informal resolution of the difficulty. No formal complaint will be advanced unless the student is able to document that he or she first attempted to resolve the matter on their own.

University Compliance Reporting

The University encourages members of the Drexel community to consult the university compliance policy whenever they believe that they are, or might find themselves to be, in a situation where their actions might reflect poorly on the University, its integrity, mission, responsibilities to its students and patients, standing, or reputation. 

Because the obligation to act in a manner consistent with the Applicable Rules is owed by every member of the University community to every member, all members of the University Community are expected to report any activity or practice that may violate any Applicable Rule to their supervisor, the Chief Compliance Officer, the General Counsel, or the confidential Hotline available by phone or by web:
