If a student has a problem regarding a specific course, instructor, or decision, the student should first seek to discuss it with the instructor or staff member involved.
If the problem is not resolved and the problem involves an academic matter, the student should request a meeting with the Director of Education or Campus Director at the site where the class is held.
If the problem is not an academic matter, the student should request a meeting with the appropriate department director.
If problems are not resolved through discussion with staff, faculty, or directors, a complaint can be made in writing to the President of Fox College. Written complaints can be mailed or left at the front desk of either campus. Students may also submit complaints online via the form below. All complaints submitted in writing or via the web will be reviewed and responded to within 10 business days. If the name and contact information are left blank the complaint will be reviewed and logged.
Students with other issues that are not resolved in this manner may contact the Illinois Board of Higher Education. Please visit http://complaints.ibhe.org for contact information.
NONDISCRIMINATION IN EDUCATION PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES
Educational institutions receiving federal financial assistance are required to comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. These federal laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender, including sexual harassment and sexual violence; sexual orientation; genetic information; race; color; religion; national origin; age; veteran status; and disability in the education programs and activities that they operate. Fox College is subject to these laws and complies fully with them in the enrollment of students, the hiring of faculty and staff, and in all other activities of the College. The Director of Education, who is identified in the Administration, Faculty, and Staff section of this catalog and who may be reached at 708-444-4500, is the Title IX coordinator at Fox College Midway Campus. The Campus Director, who is identified in the Administration, Faculty, and Staff section of this catalog and who may be reached at 708-444-4500, is the Title IX coordinator at Fox College Degree Site. Questions regarding Title IX may be referred to the Title IX coordinators or to the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights. Students, faculty, and administrative employees are encouraged to bring any complaints or reports of discrimination to the coordinator's attention. The matter will be investigated promptly, and both parties will be notified in writing about the outcome of the complaint. Appropriate follow-up will be implemented to assure that no person associated with the college is subjected to unlawful discrimination. Individuals who report discrimination will not be subjected to any retaliation for doing so.
