"Sometimes, when you have an issue, you know want to do something about it but don't know where to start. My job is to not only help you understand what you need to do, but also potentially calm your nerves throughout the process to ultimately help you succeed. Regardless of how big or small your concern, I am a safe and impartial resource for students."
Distance Education students, who have completed the internal institutional grievance process and the applicable state grievance process, may appeal complaints to the FL-SARA PRDEC Council. For additional information on the complaint process, please visit the FL-SARA Complaint Process page.
