What happens when I submit a form?
Reports may be submitted by faculty, staff, students, guests, contractors, vendors, or third parties regarding an incident involving faculty, staff, students, guests, contractors, or vendors. The online form is received by Dawn Miller, Interim Director of Human Resources, and Sarah Griesse, Dean of Students. Upon receipt of the form, they will consult and determine who should respond initially to the report.
If you share your name on the form (optional), either Dawn or Sarah will contact you directly and promptly, typically within 24 hours. Dawn or Sarah will talk with you about the incident and discuss options. Options include but are not limited to officially recording the incident without further action, contacting the individual named in the report to discuss what occurred, employing the appropriate/applicable process (e.g., Student Conduct Process, Human Resources investigation, etc.) to determine an outcome, and/or providing information regarding resources and support. We will do our best to follow the reporting person’s preferences.
