Who do I talk to if I have an issue with my professor?
Discuss the issue with the Professor (often times it can be resolved at this level). 

If the student does not find resolution with the Professor or the issue is too uncomfortable to discuss directly with the Professor then:

Contact the Department chair and discuss the issue with them. (chairs can often help with resolutions at the department level)

Due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act , Federal Law 20 U.S.C 1232g, ( FERPA ) Law, it is illegal for any FAU employee (faculty or staff) to share information about your student.
