What happens after an incident report is submitted?
Once you make a report to the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE), our staff will:
- Acknowledge and thank the reporter.
- Email or call the victim/survivor to offer resources and supportive measures
- Offer the opportunity to participate in a resolution.
- Assist in remedying the situation and stopping the negative behavior from occurring in the future.
An incident report does not, on its own, initiate an investigation. An investigation will only begin after a signed complaint is submitted to OIE, either by the complainant or by an OIE director. For more information, please see our OIE Process Standards. Unless the reporter is a complainant or respondent, they may not receive updates after the incident report is submitted, nor will they be notified about an outcome.
