Student Conduct & Adjudication

In our efforts to diffuse student complaints at the initial contact and provide the student with quick and accurate due process we are modifying our current complaint management model to blend Student Affairs and Academic Affairs so we work as a team…

  • To diffuse the complaint at the lowest level
  • To provide timely responses to all key stakeholders
  • To be transparent to all key stakeholders
  • To provide the student with due process at all levels
  • To document all communication

If you are interested in having Student Affairs staff provide training on the Complaint Investigation Process, please contact Cindy Jepsen, Coordinator of Compliance Services, cindy.jepsen@mesacc.edu

The following attachments will provide clarity in understanding the MCC Student Complaint Investigation Process and to provide support in your assistance to diffuse the complaint at the lowest level.
