Steps to Reporting
Are you looking for resources when you feel you have been discriminated against or have a DEI issue or complaint? Please see below for resources for students, faculty, and staff for reporting these.
- CARE Referral form: The Campus Assessment, Response, and Evaluation Team (CARE Team) engages in various approaches to identify and assess students who are distressed or may exhibit concerning behaviors. Faculty, staff, and students should use this form to notify the CARE Team about any student concerns. This could be a wide variety of things: from a student who stopped going to class to a student experiencing suicide ideation.
- Personal Misconduct: the Office of Student Conduct and Care is responsible for upholding the Code of Student Conduct. Faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to submit incidents they encounter via the link below. This addresses only student behavior.
- The Office of Student Conduct and Care assists students if they have a complaint against a faculty member within the context of the classroom (grade appeals, other general academic issues). The director walks students through their options to report formally and informally. Students can call or email with questions.
