Anonymous Reporting

UC Davis allows for anonymous reporting through multiple methods. It is important to note if you make a report anonymously we may be limited in our ability to respond, meet your desired resolution, and/or keep you updated on the status of the complaint. For more information about possible impacts of reporting anonymously, please see the left side of this page.  Please also note Designated Officials (supervisors, managers and faculty), including HDAPP, cannot guarantee the report to be anonymous if they are aware of the parties involved.

Responsible Employee cannot report concerns anonymously unless they are reporting their own personal concerns or if they are calling with questions to identify if it the concern is something they are obligated to report.

Please contact HDAPP with your questions regarding anonymous reporting.

Some individuals are motivated to report anonymously due to a fear of retaliation. If this is a concern for you, we encourage you to visit our Understanding the Process page to learn how our policies prohibit retaliation.
