  8. If an unresolved issue remains after the discussion, the faculty member has ten contracted duty days to provide a written statement to the department chair or director outlining the concerns and suggesting adjustments to the evaluation. The department chair and director will respond in writing within ten duty days of the receipt of the statement.
  9. If the issue remains unresolved, then it will be reviewed through administrative channels by the director, if appropriate, and the dean.
