Attestation of Student Complaint Process

Complaint & Dispute Resolution Procedure
IWC realizes the value of constructive feedback from all levels of our organization including students, faculty and administration. As such, we seek mutually beneficial resolution to any disputes or complaints and have established this system for collecting, considering and acting upon concerns. It is important for all members of the IWC organization to realize that any decision has far reaching effects across multiple departments and systems and that, keeping the foundational guidelines in this catalog in mind, compromise may be required on one or all sides of any conflict in order to maintain the integrity of the educational programs we deliver.

All students, faculty, administrators or other organization members are required to follow this complaint and dispute resolution procedure:

  1. Students and/or staff needing to resolve problems or complaints should first contact the person whom the complaint or dispute involves in order to seek resolution.
  2. If resolution is not found with the involved person or persons, senior administration will then accept student’s formal complaint in writing by personal or postal delivery stating he or she is filing an “Official Dispute”. IWC will investigate complaints thoroughly, interview those concerned, and review all documents related to the complaint. IWC administration has full authority to determine if a complaint is valid and to take all steps necessary to resolve it. The school will provide the student with a written response within 10 business days of receiving the complaint in writing.
  3. All members of the IWC organization are encouraged to address concerns quickly and using the appropriate procedure; however, less immediate concerns will be presented and are encourage during regular survey of students and staff. Detail of feedback on these surveys is optional; however, self-identification is encouraged to aid in the resolution of any concerns and/or adoption of any suggestions. It is our intention to use these ongoing systems in order to continually strive for increasing effectiveness and value in our organization.
  4. All concerns must be addressed using the above outlined process, and decisions made by senior administration of IWC are final.
  5. Complaints not resolved to student satisfaction may be addressed to Indiana Department of Workforce Development, Office for Career and Technical Schools (317) 234-8338 or (317) 234-8339
  6. Complaints not resolved to student satisfaction may be addressed to our Accrediting Agency: ACCET CHAIR, COMPLAINT REVIEW COMMITTEE 1722 N Street, NW Washington, DC 20036 Telephone: (202) 955-1113 Fax: (202) 955-1118 or (202) 955-5306 Email: [email protected] Website: www.accet.org

Gossip/ Positive Speech Policy

At IWC, you are not required to like everyone or agree with what other people may think, but you are required to treat all students, staff and clients with dignity and respect. If you have a legitimate dispute, please refer to the IWC Dispute Policy. If you are in doubt as to whether you should say something, don’t say it. Gossip (including bad mouthing another student’s therapeutic ability, voicing unbalanced opinions on highly volatile political or ethical topics, or violating client confidentiality) will not be tolerated at any time. Violations will result in grade penalties and/or dismissal from the program.

IWC has defined Gossip as any comment which is of a negative nature to ANY individual other than a direct supervisor (Clinic Coach, Trainer, Campus Director, Director of Education). Coworkers and fellow students have no capacity to correct third party action; therefore, it would only propagate negativity.
Concerns or potential concerns should always be directed Up-line, never Cross-line or Down-line.

Student Therapist concerns, experiences and clinic incidents (both Positive and negative) are commonly reviewed in a supervised way by instructors and staff to facilitate all students learning and professional progress. Efforts must always be taken to limit identifying individuals while encouraging learning in the areas of pathologies, treatment procedures, and improving interpersonal interaction.

This policy/procedure is required to maintain professional confidentiality, a positive learning environment and to grow constructively from negative circumstances.

Forum Etiquette Guidelines

  • Be mindful of what you post. This is a school page not your personal page. Please do not use slang or improper language.
  • If you have a question regarding academics, post on the Forum that way if someone else has the same question everyone can see it and staff can respond faster.
  • Avoid posting comments unless it is relevant, or it adds to the discussion material.
  • A good post: “In anatomy we talked about…. Here is a video I think complements what we learned.”
  • Bad example: “That was cool beans” or “That’s the Pillsbury”
  • If you like something, hit the like button; don’t put a response in the comments.
  • Questions and communications appropriate to all students should be posted on Forums. Information of a private matter should be sent to the proper staff email address.
  • School announcements will be posted on Community Forum and IWC’s public social media pages. Do not contact staff members.
  • The Forum pages are for school usage not for personal gain. Do not sell/ push products onto others using the school’s social media pages.
