Responding to an incident also happens in two different ways.

Response Pathways

  1. A response to an individual who submits a report to ensure that they feel seen and heard.
  2. A response to a campus community that has been targeted by such reports to try to ensure members feel seen, heard, safe, and valued.
    • These can happen simultaneously. 

In general, a response includes connecting to professional staff who are ready to listen, support and connect students to helpful resources and a path toward restoration.

For Individual Responses


If you indicate you want to be contacted, a Student Affairs staff member will contact you within 48 hours. They will schedule a time to meet with you (if you chose) and bring in other staff members to help process this issue. If this has been filled out after hours, on the weekend, or during Winter Closure, there may be a delay.

If you want to talk to someone immediately

Please contact your local neighborhood student support staff(RA/Hose Staff), if you are an undergraduate student or a Graduate Life Office (GLO) Dean, if you are a graduate or co-term student. ‚Äč

  • Additionally, please see this list of University offices that may serve as systems of support.

Staff/Postdoctoral Candidates

Your form will be forwarded to University Human Resources - Employee and Labor Relations. If this has been filled out after hours, on weekend, or during Winter closure there may be a delay.

For Community Responses

Student serving staff will work together to ensure that targeted communities have information, resources, and a response should they determine that a need arises. This will vary case by case.
