SAC is listening to you. To make our support for staff and general operations more transparent we have instituted a new feedback system for the Brown community to communicate with us.

We are available to you by email to, mail to Brown University, Box 1955, or direct contact with any SAC member. You may also anonymously leave your feedback via our online form.

It is important to note that in accordance with federal regulations and official University policies, all staff are mandatory reporters for certain issues. These issues include, but are not limited to:

SAC must report these issues to the appropriate policy-designated official.

The table below will be updated periodically to show the status of unresolved issues. Note that general comments, non-actionable submissions and closed issues will not appear in this table. Full reports of staff feedback along with SAC's response will be added under the appropriate year and month in the feedback menu when the issue is resolved.
