Appeal a SAC Resolution
The Student Administrative Commission (SAC) is the AMS commission that administers affairs related to AMS clubs, constituencies, and resource groups. For a review of its specific roles, please click here.
If you are unsatisfied with a resolution by SAC, you may take steps to appeal that decision:
- You should first speak to the chair of SAC, the AMS’ VP administration. Your communication with the VP admin is your opportunity to understand why SAC made the decision they did. The VP admin will explain to you the rationale behind the decision. You may also ask for the objective criteria the commission had used to make its decision;
- You can consult the AMS Code of Procedures to learn more about procedures that are pertinent to the operation of SAC;
- If you believe the procedure for reaching a resolution, or the resolution itself, is unfair, you may approach the Ombuds Office to ask for an investigation. Please follow the Guidelines for Filing a Grievance. The Ombuds Office will make a recommendation to SAC or to AMS Council;
- At anytime, you may alternatively approach the AMS Student Court and make an application for a hearing/trial.
