Equity Grievance Panel - Colgate University Skip Navigation

Equity Grievance Panel (EGP)

Members of the EGP are trained in all aspects of the grievance process to:
  • Provide sensitive intake and initial counseling of complaints
  • Serve in a mediation role in conflict resolution
  • Investigate complaints
  • Act as advisers to those involved in complaints, and
  • Serve on hearing panels for complaints.
EGP members also recommend proactive policies, and serve in an educative role for the community. EGP members receive annual training organized by the Director for EEO/AA, including a review of Colgate policies and procedures so that they are able to provide accurate information to members of the community. All EGP members are required to attend this annual training. All administrative advisers also undergo training with the panel regardless of whether they are formally appointed to the panel.

An individual who wishes to receive emotional support only should contact one of the following confidential counseling resources:
