About the DOS Office


The University of South Florida is committed to mutual respect among all constituents of the University community. This commitment includes students, faculty, staff, and administration alike. In all concerns about fair treatment, we seek to work together to understand and address those concerns in an informal setting. As there are several offices designated to address grievances throughout the University, with specific processes applicable to USF Health. Students should first identify the topic or substance of a grievance and file the grievance with the appropriate office.

For academic concerns that cannot be resolved with the instructor, contacting the department chair is the next step.
