With any kind of academic or personal grievances that you feel you need outside help, the first person to seek out would be your department graduate chair or an advisory committee chairperson. If possible, arrange a meeting to discuss the issues with him/her. If meeting with this person is not possible or the results are undesirable, you can consider approaching the CMGSS or your departmental representative to act as a mediator. The GSA also offers to act in such a role for students.
