Community PIH Incidents & Updates

Main content start

We created Community PIH Incidents & Updates to centrally house and communicate the PIH incidents, via our dashboard, that can potentially have a broad impact on the Stanford community.

Report an Incident

The goals of this site are to ensure

  • Timely reporting of reportable incidents
  • Transparent and aggregate information
  • An easily and readily accessible online presence
  • To specifically address what happened in an incident and how the University is responding to it 

PIH incidents not posted on the dashboard remain an important part of our data gathering efforts. Students impacted by reported PIH incidents, whether or not the incidents are posted on the dashboard, are connected with staff to address concerns and receive referrals to additional helpful resources. The data from all reported incidents will still be used for University purposes.

Community Incidents & Updates Dashboard

This dashboard only includes PIH incidents that affect the greater Stanford community and likely involve public safety concerns. We will respond to all reported PIH incidents, and we recognize all incidents have harmful impacts. Learn more details on the incidents included on the dashboard.

The incidents on the dashboard will also be updated regularly as long as the University is reviewing the case.
