  • In Person

    Wondering where to report an incident? View our reporting areas. You can confidentially report an incident of bias, intolerance or discrimination. These offices and resources exist to support students, staff and faculty.

If you witness or experience conduct that discriminates, stereotypes, excludes, harasses or harms anyone in our community based on their identity (such as race, color, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, age or religion) please report it to the University.

Faculty and staff who call the number during normal business hours will be connected to the Office of Institutional Equity; students to the Dean of Students Office. Staff from these offices will offer support and begin to discuss next steps with callers. Those who call the phone line after normal business hours should leave a message and a staff member will get back with them on the next business day.

Where to Report

The University is committed to providing safe spaces for community members to report an incident. The staff of these offices has been trained to be welcoming and sensitive to student, staff and community concerns. Please do not feel boxed in to any one office, people from all backgrounds are invited to report and share.
