General complaint procedures at Presidio Graduate School
The following steps represent PGS’s informal dispute resolution process and, as such, outside legal or other counsel may not be present for either the respondent or the complainant. If outside legal counsel becomes involved, the informal problem-solving process ceases.
Step One: Students should first attempt to solve the problem through direct discussion. PGS encourages discussion between the parties directly involved in a dispute, especially in the early stages. When first faced with a concern or problem regarding academic or administrative policy, procedure, decision, or conduct, students should first make a good faith attempt to resolve the problem through one or more discussions about the problem with the person(s) most directly involved.
Step Two: If discussion does not solve the problem, help should be sought. If direct discussion does not solve the problem, or if the student would like additional help or support in continuing the resolution process, or needs advice about how to engage in a discussion about difficult issues, or just feels unsure about what next step to take, the Vice President of Enrollment and Student Affairs should be consulted.
The Vice President of Enrollment and Student Affairs or designee will assist students with this process. The Vice President of Enrollment and Student Affairs or designee will work to understand the problem and then will do one or more of the following:
- Provide consultation about next steps or assist in contacting the Vice President of Enrollment and Student Affairs, if appropriate.
- Provide direct assistance if the problem is administrative.
- Refer the student to an appropriate academic advisor or administrator, or work with the student to get access to appropriate academic assistance or consultation if the issue is academically related.
- If multiple issues are involved, the Vice President of Enrollment and Student Affairs or designee can work to assemble all the appropriate parties to address the issue.
- If discrimination or harassment is involved, the Vice President of Enrollment and Student Affairs or designee can assist with any safety issues, and ensure that the problem is reported appropriately.
- The Vice President of Enrollment and Student Affairs or designee is responsible for working collaboratively with students to identify the appropriate PGS resources to help them, and in administrative areas may be able to provide direct support. The Vice President of Enrollment and Student Affairs or others working with students may request that information be provided in writing to assist with the resolution of the issue. A good-faith effort should be made to resolve the issues at an informal level before filing a formal grievance.
Facilities and services available to students with disabilities
In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the implementing regulations 34 CFR part 104 (barring discrimination on the basis of disability), and the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and the implementing regulations in 29 CFR part 1630 (1992), Presidio Graduate School is committed to providing students with disabilities full access to its programs, events, and facilities. The Office of Student Experience oversees the coordination of services for students with disabilities. To benefit from the protection of ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, students must self-disclose a disability to the Office of Student Experience and request an accommodation. The School requires the student to provide the Office of Student Experience medical documentation that verifies the existence of the disability, the student’s current condition, and need for an accommodation. Documentation must be submitted from the student’s treating medical provider and must have been issued within 3-years of the student’s request. A member of the Office of Student Experience will confer directly with the student requesting accommodations. A student’s disability has no bearing whatsoever on a student’s acceptance or non-acceptance to any of Presidio Graduate School’s degree programs. Potential or current students with a disability seeking an accommodation may also contact the Office of Student Experience, which will provide answers to common questions about disability services or the accommodations process and is responsive to all situations. Presidio Graduate School has an obligation to maintain confidentiality regarding a student’s disability. Any information collected is solely for the student’s benefit. It is maintained separately from the student’s university record and housed within secure files with access limited to staff with a legitimate academic interest. An accommodated student will be informed as to what information is being provided to the faculty or staff regarding the request. Except where permitted by applicable law, disability information will not be shared with non- Presidio Graduate School employees without the student’s express written permission.

Intellectual property rights
By definition, students’ work, including the contributions of faculty/advisors, has a copyright, as a default, that is shared between all the stakeholders. This means that any member of the team is welcome to use the material, with exceptions, in any enterprise of their choosing. Exceptions arise when sponsors or project leaders contribute significant/specific proprietary information to the advancement of the project that is critical to the conduct and success of the project. The intellectual property rights of such sponsors/project leaders are to be governed under a separate formal agreement. PGS’s support should also be acknowledged. Presidio Graduate School retains the right to publish and/or communicate these works, except where confidential materials are involved. It is the responsibility of the students, advisors, sponsors and/or faculty to identify confidential materials as such. If work is for hire, any intellectual property rights will be governed under a separate formal agreement. As above, if the work is associated with a sponsor, intellectual property rights associated with that work will also be governed under a separate formal agreement. The default agreement of the Experiential Learning projects is that the sponsor company has the right to use the work produced, but that the students, faculty, advisors, and PGS retain the rights to publish and use anything that is not confidential. PGS has the right to publish or otherwise publicly disclose information gained in the course of the project. To avoid loss of potential patent rights as a result of premature public disclosure of patentable information or the disclosure of any confidential information supplied by the sponsor, PGS will submit any prepublication materials to the sponsor for review and comment at least fifteen (15) days prior to planned submission for publication. The sponsor shall notify PGS within such time period of any inventions or discoveries subject to the parties’ rights or disclose any confidential information subject to protection. PGS shall have the final authority to determine the scope and content of any publications. As students initiate projects, it is each student’s responsibility to communicate any concerns that they may have regarding the default copyright shared by all the stakeholders. At that point, the stakeholders will need to initiate a conversation to define the potential rights issues of concern. A more formal agreement may be appropriate depending on the outcome of the conversation(s).
