Resolution of Complaints

Indiana University East is committed to a policy of fair treatment of its students in their relationships with fellow students, faculty, staff and administrators. In the event of a problem, students are encouraged to seek an informal resolution of the matter directly with the faculty or individual(s) involved when possible. For matters where an informal resolution is not feasible, a Complaint Form can be used to initiate that process. The complaint form must be completed and emailed ( or mailed to:

Indiana University East
ATTN: Complaints
2325 Chester Blvd,
Whitewater Hall – Room 101
Richmond, Indiana 47374

The completed complaint form will be reviewed by the Dean of Students and forwarded to the appropriate office based on the subject matter.

  • Example 1:  If the complaint is against a student for violation of the Code of Student Conduct, the complaint will be addressed by the Dean of Students.
  • Example 2:  If the complaint alleges discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, the complaint will be forwarded to Director of the Office of Affirmative Action.
  • Example 3: If the subject matter is an academic complaint, the complaint will be addressed by the appropriate school dean in consultation with the Chief Academic Officer and/or Dean of Students.
