Informal Grievance Resolution Prior to bringing a grievance forward against a university office or representative acting within their role or duty, students are encouraged to attempt a good-faith resolution of the grievance. This attempt may be made with the party directly involved with the disputed matter, or with the head of the department or unit in which the grievance arises. Please note that there are cases when it is appropriate to go directly to the formal grievance resolution process. Attempts at informal resolution should be initiated within 30 days of the incident in dispute. V. Formal Grievance Resolution

4 University Profile Should a situation arise in which a student is unable to resolve his or her grievance informally, the university’s formal grievance process may be employed. This process, outlined below, should also be initiated within 30 days of the failed informal resolution if applicable. Step I A formal grievance is presented by the student in writing to the Provost Office. This written grievance must include the following: Name, address, phone number and email of the person making the grievance; Identification of the office or individual against whom the grievance is brought; A description of the specific university action or individual behavior resulting in this grievance; The date or period of time in which the behavior occurred and the location of the incident; and A listing of all individuals who witnessed any part of the incident in dispute. If a grievance is against the Provost or staff in the Office of the Provost, then the formal grievance is presented by the student in writing to the Vice President for Student Affairs. Step II Upon receipt of the formal grievance, a designee is appointed by the Provost to investigate the dispute. Pertinent data (documents, interviews, etc.) will be gathered by the investigator and the matter will be handled in a timely manner. If the grievance involves a university office or representative acting within their role or duty, the investigator will determine the involvement of pertinent supervisors, department chairs and deans, and present a report to the appropriate department for decision. If the grievance is based on personal misconduct by a faculty member or other university employee, the investigator gathers pertinent information and presents it to either the pertinent dean (faculty complaint) or the Assistant Vice President for Human Resources (staff complaint).

At the heart of the beautifully landscaped campus is Kingsmen Park, surrounded by the university’s academic and residential facilities. Since the turn of the century, the university has added 13 major facilities on the main campus including the Spies-Bornemann Center for Education and Technology in 2002 and the Swenson Center for the Social and Behavioral Sciences in 2010, Cal Lutheran’s first LEED-certified structure. The athletics complex on the north side of campus continues to grow with venues for intercollegiate and intramural sports, exercise science classrooms and laboratories, and athletic and fitness areas. William Rolland Stadium opened in fall 2011 as a venue for football, soccer and intramural matches. The 16,000-square-foot facility also houses the William Rolland Gallery of Fine art. The LEED-certified Ullman Commons, completed in fall 2014, transforms the heart of the campus. The 15 million, 20,000-square-foot environmentally friendly two-level dining commons with adjoining Starbucks coffee bar provides a gathering place for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff and visitors. A new Student Union Building is slated to open by the end of 2015 on the site of the old Dining Commons. The 18,000-square-foot facility will house student life, student government and experiential learning, and expanded areas for student recreation. Cal Lutheran’s strategic plan envisions new facilities for the creative arts, new and renovated science facilities, and new housing for the School of Management. The university focuses on environmental sustainability and responsible building practices in all facilities and operations. History In 1959 the Pederson Ranch, nestled against the rolling hills of the Conejo Valley, began its transformation to today’s dynamic learning community of California Lutheran University. Richard Pederson, the son of Norwegian immigrants, donated his scenic ranch to be used “to cultivate a new crop of fertile, inquiring minds.” The ranch now forms the heart of the Thousand Oaks campus. California Lutheran College welcomed its first students in 1961. The young college’s early commitment to excellence led to its being granted accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) during its first academic year. In 1986 the name was changed from California Lutheran College to California Lutheran University to better reflect its breadth of undergraduate, graduate and professional programs. Educational Objectives As a comprehensive university rooted in the Lutheran tradition, California Lutheran University views liberal learning, professional preparation, and character development as mutually supportive pillars of its educational excellence. The liberal arts establish the essential foundations for defining challenges, integrating perspectives and articulating solutions, all of which comprise the cornerstone of lifelong learning. Professional programs provide the theoretical and practical framework for students to excel in specialized careers. Finally, a Cal Lutheran education must instill in students both the habits of heart and the convictions that will lead them to use their knowledge for service in their immediate communities and in society. With varying degrees of emphasis, these basic elements undergird all of Cal Lutheran’s educational activities. They are delivered to students through academic and co-curricular programs, but also through pedagogical practices and the culture that permeates the campus. The success of our academic and co-curricular programs will ultimately be measured not only by what our students learn in the classroom but also by their success in realizing and pursuing their individual passions. The distinction of a Cal Lutheran education is that its graduates are exceptionally well prepared for meaningful lives directed by a sense of vocation, leadership and service.
