Student Rights and Grievances

Student Government Association
Director of Student Rights & Grievances


My name is Heather LeBouef, and I am your Director of Student Rights and Grievances for the 2021-2022 academic year. What a privilege it is to serve you again this year — as it has been my pleasure to also have served you for the past two years as a Senator-at-Large. I have always given you, Nicholls students, my absolute best, and I intend to do just that once again in this new position.

You may be wondering what my job is as your Director of Student Rights and Grievances and how exactly I can help you! I’m here to advise and assist you throughout this year if you are faced with any difficulties on campus, whether it be an academic grievance (like a grade appeal), a complaint of unfair treatment, a concern with something you come across on our campus property, or anything else.

With me, you can rest assured that you are being led by someone with a variety of work, life, and educational experiences. This colorful background allows me to assess your concerns through a unique lens, understanding you on a level that helps me to make the best decisions with you and lend you the best advice. I can make a promise to you now that when you step into my office or send a message to my email, it is absolutely a judgement-free zone, and my #1 priority will always be to make sure that your rights as a student are protected, your concerns are properly resolved, and you are treated with respect by all parties throughout the process. There is no need to feel embarrassed or dramatic approaching me with concerns. My office is a safe space for you, and, together, we will find a resolution.

These are unprecedented times as we navigate this COVID-19 pandemic. Some of you may feel defeated, while some of you may have handled the transition to this “new normal” gracefully. Whatever the case may be, this is different for everyone. I have the highest hopes that we are all able to make the best personal decisions to stay safe and well during these times, returning to events with friends, laughter, and lots of great memories to be made. I hope that you all have a wonderful year, and I look forward to serving you!
