Any individual member of the University community may register a complaint when an alleged violation of the Code of Student Conduct and/or Residential Life Community Standards has occurred. A report should be submitted as soon after the incident as possible to ensure an accurate recollection, as well as a prompt response. All complaints or incidents will be reviewed to determine if a violation of the Code of Student Conduct and/or Residential Life Community Standards allegedly occurred. If so, the case is assigned to a staff member for resolution.
Please note that by submitting a report, all information will remain private but not confidential. If you wish to speak to someone confidentially prior to reporting, please refer to the campus resources below noted as confidential. If you are unsure whether you would like to file a formal report, you can meet with a staff member in the Dean of Students Office or Residence Education to discuss what options are available.
