The Director or his/her designee will review your appeal and you will be contacted via your Gallaudet e-mail account to schedule an appointment to discuss the appeal and to gather information regarding the incident from you and other relevant parties.
After considering all available information, the Director or his/her designee will decide whether to retain, revise, or reverse the decision and you will be informed of the decision through the Residence Life Appeal Decision letter sent to your Gallaudet e-mail account.
