Making a Report

Individuals who have been subjected to discrimination or harassment based on protected characteristics, any form of sexual misconduct*, and/or related retaliation, have several options for reporting their concern(s). The Office of Equity (OE) is here to provide resources and support, as appropriate, to ensure all involved parties have access to a safe and inclusive working and academic environment. Depending on the nature of the alleged conduct, individuals have the ability to pursue reporting processes either with the University and/or outside of the University.


Note*: Due to nuances in the new Title IX regulations, there may be additional requirements in filing a formal complaint of prohibited sexual misconductIf you have questions about the formal complaint process, you can reach out to our office. 


In alignment with the University’s concerns for the safety of our community in response to COVID-19, OE staff will be working remotely. As such, we may experience minor delays in our response times. Currently, we will not be scheduling in-person appointments or be available on campus. We will, however, remain available via phone, email and video conference. Thank you for your understanding.
