Grievance Resolution

Having a Problem?

Do you have an unresolved issue with a professor, advisor, fellow student, or staff member? The GSA may be able to help.

The GSA provides grievance assistance to graduate students on campus. The GSA’s Internal Vice President (IVP) is happy to help graduate students navigate the thorny interpersonal issues that sometimes arise during graduate study as well as the seemingly daunting university bureaucracy. We approach all issues with confidentiality.

The GSA-IVP can:

  • Strategize and help you select an effective course of action to resolve your grievance.
  • Identify resources on- and off-campus that can provide you with support.
  • Advocate on your behalf to the university administration if you wish for them to do so.

Email gsainternalvicepresident@ucdavis.edu if you are interested in learning more.
