Chancellor Interpretation

I interpret this policy to mean that the District Office and the Colleges will engage with the citizens of Maricopa County and community partners through such measures as community advisory councils/committees and community forums that seek to gather input. They shall also respond to concerns and complaints through formal mechanisms outlined in policy, and informal mechanisms (via web-based mechanisms) such as the Chancellor's webpage or the informal services of the Citizen's Ombudsperson.

Compliance will also be demonstrated when procedures, decisions, or interactions that are unfair, undignified, or unresponsive and that have been noticed and substantiated through established grievance processes are addressed in a timely and effective manner.
