Discussion: For the tabled appeal the committee has requested the student provide the course syllabus and e-mail communications between the student and instructor. The committee would also like the instructor’s response to the student’s allegations. The committee also strongly encourages the student to discuss his concerns about the instructor with the Department Chair.
