Reporting Unprofessional Behavior and Mistreatment

What to do if you see or experience unprofessional behavior

Follow the instructions outlined in your course syllabus for reporting such concerns and complaints. If directions for reporting unprofessional behavior are not outlined in your course syllabus, you are encouraged to contact your course coordinator or departmental program advisor.

Additional student resources are available to help you:

Ombudsman services are available to help you with academic and non-academic concerns, questions and complaints (e.g., fee payment, housing, financial aid, grades, professors, parking and other university-related issues). An ombudsman is a neutral third party, and confidentiality is ensured. The Student Ombudsman Office is located in Suite 2.110, Lee Hage Jamail Student Center, (409) 747-4820. Visit https://www.utmb.edu/ombudsman/ for more details.

Additional details on student non-academic grievance procedures can be found in the UTMB Handbook of Operating Procedures.

Note: Discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual assault are crimes that should be brought to the attention of your school's Student Affairs Dean and the Human Resources - Employee Relations. You are also encouraged to notify Campus Police at ext. 21111. Call 911 in the event of an emergency.
