How can I prepare for this process?

  • Stay with “I” statements and prepare an outline of your concerns prior to your meeting.
  • Present the facts of the situation.
  • Provide supporting documents when appropriate; for example, syllabus, tests, test scores, sample computation of your grade.
  • Schedule an appointment with the person you have a concern with rather than just dropping by.
  • Communicate with the person in a respectful and thoughtful way.
