If you have a complaint about any aspect of the University, you should always begin by trying to solve it at the local level by talking to the person/ people concerned.  Most problems should be solved this way.  In case you need to follow the matter further, you should organize to have a meeting or write to the head of department of the areas concerned.  If your problem is not solved after discussion with the Head of Department concerned, you should write formally to the chief Academic Officer.
