Protected Identity Harm (PIH) Reporting

Protected Identity Harm (PIH) Reporting is a relatively new name created in the late summer of 2021. After several months of benchmarking, research and discussion, a working group made a recommendation to the Vice Provost of Student Affairs to rename the Acts of Intolerance process in an effort to counter what felt misleading and outdated. The approved process will now be called Protected Identity Harm Reporting. We hope that the new name captures the vision and intention of addressing harm to individuals and communities.
