Student Complaints and Student-Owned Intellectual Property

Student Complaints

Niagara University is committed to the respectful and fair treatment of students. Students who believe they have not been treated in this manner may submit a grievance to the dean of students. The dean of students will act in accordance with the university policy on student complaints.

Student-Owned Intellectual Property

Unless otherwise provided for in a written, signed instrument, students at Niagara University own the copyright, trademark, patent, or trade secrets (collectively “intellectual property”) that are their original works of authorship or novel intentions. To that end, Niagara University faculty, administration, staff, and students are expected to create an environment where awareness and respect for intellectual property are regarded as critical aspects of academic freedom. Procedures to implement this policy are available in our policy database.
