Please note just because your concerns don't fall within the scope of our work, this does not mean the events did or did not occur as alleged, or that they were or were not appropriate. 


What can you do if you experienced any of the Five Complaint Types?

  • Don't blame yourself.
  • You have not asked for this unwelcome behavior.

  • Act quickly.
  • You can choose to file a report.

    The behavior will not go away. Often the behavior escalates rather than diminishes. Also, some options for remedy expire after 30 days.

  • Keep a record.
  • Note dates, places, times and witnesses, as well as the nature of the unwanted conduct.
