Before Filing A Complaint

We take every concern reported to our office very seriously. Before informing our office of a concern, please do your best to recall the points below:

  • Who reported it, to whom, about whom, and who else has been notified;
  • What was reported (focus on facts not on conclusions);
  • When did it happen (without regard as to when) and when was it reported;
  • Where did it occur (such as specific address, name of residence hall, etc.)

Please also read over the difference between confidentiality and privacy.

Retaliation against any individual for reporting concerns to the University is strictly prohibited.
