You should start by addressing any question or concern about research with your PI or supervisor. If it is not satisfactorily addressed by the PI or supervisor, you should turn to your departmental graduate student advisor and/or department.
If you feel that a mediator outside of your department is necessary for fair deliberation, you may bring the issue to your school/divisional equity advisor. Should you believe the issue gives rise to a discrimination-related concern, you may also utilize the standard reporting procedures at the Discrimination Prevention Office, Title IX Office, or the ADA/504 Compliance Office.
Should the issue not be resolved or you are not comfortable taking Steps 1 or 2, you or the equity advisor can bring the concern to the attention of the academic case managers in the Graduate Division, who may choose to involve the graduate associate deans or graduate dean.
If the academic case manager and/or graduate deans determine that additional review is needed, they may refer the case to the Vice Chancellor for Research and Creative Activities, Roger Wakimoto. Graduate students and postdocs should familiarize themselves with the range of resources available for their support, including academic services and accommodation requests. Postdoctoral scholars can also reach out to their bargaining unit for concerns regarding their contract.
