5.6. Appeals

Any person in the University System for whom no other appeal is provided in the Bylaws and who is aggrieved by a final decision of the president of an institution, may apply to the Board of Regent’s, without prejudice to his/ her position, for a review of the decision. The application for review shall be submitted in writing to the Execu­tive Secretary of the Board within a period of twenty days following the decision of the president. It shall state the decision complained of and the redress desired. A review by the Board is not a matter of right, but is within the sound discretion of the Board. If the application for review is granted, the Board or a committee of the board or a Hearing Officer appointed by the Board, shall investigate the matter thoroughly and report its find­ings and recommendations to the Board. The Board shall render its decision thereon within sixty days from the filing date of the application for review or from the date of any hearing which may be held thereon. The decision of the Board shall be final and binding for all purposes.
