Reporting Options

If you, or someone you know, has experienced an act of hate, please report it and get support. Reporting hateful acts enables us to track incidents, observe patterns, and take corrective steps. In addition to the online reporting mechanism, UMass has several methods through which you can report a hateful act that we have compiled here. If you are not sure which to use, just choose the method or form that you are most comfortable with.
