Reporting and Response

The process outlined below is centered on students though others (faculty, staff, postdocs, and community members) can fill out the form.


5 Steps from Reporting to Resolution

Before you begin the process, we encourage you to assess your concerns. Check out What Should I Do? for more information to give you a sense of considerations for reporting and FAQs. There are resources for students who need to connect with someone immediately.  

  1. Report the Issue. Fill out the AOI Form if you feel like reporting an incident. This can be done anonymously.  
  2. Automated Response. You will received an automated response from Qualtrics, if you choose to disclose contact information. The message includes information about next steps. 
  3. Curated Response. A Student Affairs staff member will review your report and analyze to give you a curated response and options for next steps depending on circumstances and your wishes. It is your choice about what you want to do next. *If the AOI reports a hate crime or harrasment, appropriate offices will be contacted. 
  4. Initial Meeting. If a student so chooses (and for 2020-2021 meets criteria depending on their enrollment status),* we will schedule an initial meeting with Student Affairs staff and/or campus partners, including either GLO Deans, Residence Deans, or Centers for Equity, Community and Leadership staff.
  5. Path to Resolution. If a student so chooses (and for 2020-2021 meets criteria depending on their enrollment status)* the Student Affairs staff managing AOI will work with campus partners and students to help bring resolution to a case. Some examples include mediated conversation with a CAPS counselor, restorative justice session, mediation with ombudsperson.
    • Information is shared with the responding party, if applicable and if the informing party so chooses.
    • If the responding party does not want to particpate in this voluntary process, the team of staff (from Step #5) will work with the informing party to develop a resolution that allows them to feel heard and supported.
    • If the incident rises to the level of community harm, the resolution will involve support to the community.
