Community PIH Incidents must:

• Fall under the definition of a PIH incident
• Be reported through the PIH Reporting form
• Happen on campus or off-campus at a University sponsored event/program (or affect the safety and security of the student community if they do not happen on campus or at sponsored event)

Community PIH Incidents

  • Community PIH Incidents likely involve an incident that rises to the level of:
    • A hate crime
    • Unlawful discrimination
    • Harassment 
  • Other considerations include:
    • the nature of the threat
    • whether any communication was protected speech
    • intentionality of harm
    • severity of harm
    • If the incident affects the safety and security of the student community (e.g.,more than one person impacted). 
  • Examples of incidents that will likely not be on this page, include but are not limited to: 
    • roommate or interpersonal conflicts, 
    • controversial events that meet University event planning requirements, or
    • an incident that targets an individual but does not have a community impact.

Remember, the PIH Reporting process is focused on ensuring that students are seen and heard. 

Regardless of whether an incident meets the criteria for a Community PIH incident it should be reported and for students, should receive a response through our process.
