of the occurrence. The statement must include the date, time, nature of the occurrence, and
efforts made to resolve the matter, as well as the desired resolution. The dean of student life
will attempt to resolve the problem within ten (10) class days upon receipt of the student's
statement. If the student is not satisfied with the dean's action, he or she may appeal that
