Memo 36: Communicating Concerns About Instruction

If a student has any concerns about a course, course instructor, or course Teaching Assistant (TA), please see the TA or instructor about these concerns directly and as soon as possible. Direct communication with the affected parties is the simplest way to resolve any misunderstandings and miscommunication. If you are not comfortable talking with the TA or instructor, or are not satisfied with the response that you receive, you are encouraged to speak to the Department Chair of the course faculty.
