Camp Pebble does not tolerate harassment, sexual or otherwise, and will take appropriate action in response to any reported incident. Our Institute is committed to maintaining a positive learning and working environment and will respond promptly to complaints of harassment. All individuals are encouraged to resolve complaints or grievances with mutual respect and
honesty. Students are encouraged to make comments, complaints, or suggestions directly to their instructors and supervisors on an ongoing basis.
Should students feel it is not possible to discuss the problem directly with an instructor or supervisor, the following steps can be taken:
If a student is not able to reach resolution on their own independently, an appointment can be made with the Student Services Manager. The Student Services Manager will set up a time to meet with the student to discuss the issue and suggest approaches to resolution. Discussing and resolving the issue can also be achieved through emails and/or telephone calls.
If the student feels that working with the Student Services Manager has not or will not have a satisfactory resolution, the student may request to have contact from the Education Director. Requests for this contact should be made at reception by completing a request form, or by email or telephone. The student should expect that the Education Director will respond to their request by scheduling a meeting within five days of their request.
If the student feels that their complaint has not been handled to their satisfaction, it may be submitted in writing to the Director of Education for mediation. Written complaints will be addressed in writing within 14 days of the receipt of the
complaint. At the discretion of the Director of Education, the student may be asked to appear before an impartial panel.
If the issue is not satisfactorily resolved at this point, a meeting may be arranged with all parties involved in the dispute or conflict, and may include the Director of Education, and/or Administrative Director as deemed appropriate, to serve as a neutral facilitator. Each party will have an opportunity to state their concern or problem without interruption and the parties will have an opportunity to find a resolution to the problem or conflict. This meeting will be held within 14 days of the request for the meeting.
The student may submit their unresolved complaint or grievance in writing to:
