The Schools of Business, Engineering, and Law shall each have one Grievance Committee. The College of Arts & Sciences shall have two: one for the departments offering the Bachelor or Arts degree and one from the departments offering the Bachelor of Science degree. Each committee shall consist of five tenured members of its respective constituency who shall be elected by the entire faculty in that constituency. The term of office is three calendar years and shall be staggered to ensure continuity. No member shall serve two consecutive terms, except that a member hearing a pending grievance shall continue to hear and participate in the resolution of that grievance.
