 What We Do & Don't Do

What We Do

  • We receive flags and contact (call-in) the department(s) or individual(s) responsible for the practice or policy to discuss and find a solution.
  • We work with departments and individuals, not as an authoritative body.
  • We make recommendations based on best practices.
  • We create opportunities for the department(s) or individual(s) to meet with some students for clarity, if necessary.
  • We work with Common Council and DCA to amend policy, where necessary.
  • We share the final resolution on this website (see the table below) to celebrate the progress of this campaign

What We Don't Do

  • We do not call-out the department(s) or individual(s) in public.
  • We do not sanction department(s) or individual(s).
  • We do not change what we do not know or do not understand.

 Process Description

Process Description

  • Once a policy or practice is flagged (submitted), the committee discusses it at the next meeting. 
  • The committee determines the departments and/or individuals who need to be "called-in".
  • An official email is drafted and sent to the departments and/or individuals (collaborating office) to notify them of the flagged policy or practice.
  • A meeting is set up with the collaborating office to discuss and find solutions.
  • The reports section of this site is updated as we work together towards a resolution. 
  • The collaborating office is contacted six weeks after the initial meeting with the committee.
  • More meetings are organized with other stakeholders, and with the collaborating office, as needed.
  • Once a final resolution is reached, the person who made the complaint is informed and the status on the website is changed to "Resolved."
  • All collaborating offices will be asked to submit a year-end status report by June 30th.
