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 who has been targeted by such reports to try to ensure they 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 resolution

For Individual Responses


If you filled out contact information and indicated you wanted 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. Please contract 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 if you want to talk to someone immediately. If this has been filled out after hours, on the weekend, or during Winter Closure, there may be more of a delay.

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


The Office of the Ombuds and/or the school/unit in which the reporting party is a part of will be forwarded reports filled out by faculty/staff members who wish to be contacted. If you indicated that, someone will contact you within 48 hours to talk you through options availabale. If this has been filled out after hours, on weekend, or during Winter closure there may be more of a delay


At this time, the response process for other folks is limited. Thank you for understanding. 

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.
