Commission of Inquiry
Any student, faculty member, or administrative officer who has an inquiry, suggestion, or complaint may address it to the Commission of Inquiry, c/o Office of the Secretary of the Faculty, University Hall. The Commission will then direct the inquiry, suggestion, or complaint to the appropriate agency of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. When such an agency does not exist, the Commission will attempt to aid in resolving the matter. The Commission is sometimes instrumental in establishing a new agency for handling recurrent issues. Although the Commission has no power to make rulings, it can play an advocacy role in pressing for the resolution of issues.
Ordinarily, the Commission reports to the community on the matters that come before it and, in so doing, attempts to keep the community informed about factual background material and the resolution of matters of community concern.
