Reporting Options

The University encourages all members of our community to report all incidents of discrimination and/or harassment.  If you feel that you have been subjected to discrimination and/or harassment or have observed discrimination or harassment of others, you have many options, including consulting with a Confidential Resource or filing a formal complaint.  The University recognizes that deciding among these options can be difficult. 

Individuals are encouraged to seek assistance from a Confidential Resource before deciding how to proceed.  The University’s Ombuds office can provide confidential advice regarding issues of discrimination and/or harassment, and information about your options.  Please contact the Ombuds Officer to confidentially discuss any concerns or complaints.
