Reporting Sexual Misconduct, Discrimination, Harassment, or Bias
Anyone can use these links to report an incident of sexual misconduct, bias, discrimination, or harassment. The form alone does not begin an investigation. This form is a way for you to tell us about what you experienced or witnessed and for you to learn about supportive measures and resolution options.
Make a Report of Sexual Misconduct
Complete the form to report sexual misconduct, including sexual violence, relationship violence, stalking, and discrimination, harassment, or bias based on sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Make a Report of Bias, Discrimination, or Harassment Based on Another Protected Characteristic or of Retaliation
Complete the form to report discrimination, harassment, or bias based on race, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, age, disability, genetic information, marital status, pregnancy status, veteran's status, political belief or affiliation, or any other status protected by law or UND/North Dakota University System/State Board of Higher Education policy. You can also use this form to report retaliation for contacting the Equal Opportunity & Title IX Office, filing a complaint of discrimination, harassment, or sexual misconduct, and/or participating in a hearing or investigation.
You may submit the above reports anonymously by leaving the name and contact information fields blank. Anonymous reports, however, may limit the University’s ability to respond effectively to the submitted information. Furthermore, while the University will not attempt to trace anonymous reports to an individual user, a court may compel the production of log-in and user data from which certain identifying information later could be obtained.
What Happens After a Report is Submitted
Upon receipt of a report of prohibited conduct, a staff member will contact the Complainant, if identified, to provide information about supportive measures, discuss the Complainant's wishes regarding supportive measures, and explain the process of filing a formal complaint.
The information provided in this report, including names, will be shared only with the UND employees who need to know in order to assist in providing support or resolution, although in certain situations some or all of the information must be shared with local law enforcement. Disclosures are protected by privacy laws that apply to a student’s education records, law enforcement investigative records, and North Dakota law related to Title IX records, as applicable. Complainants always have the right to choose whether to participate in any University or law enforcement processes.
The University also offers access to confidential resources for students and employees who are unsure about whether to report prohibited conduct or are seeking counseling or other emotional support in addition to (or without) making a report to the University.
Students and employees are entitled to receive information, assistance, and a broad range of supportive measures regardless of whether they choose to file a formal complaint or pursue criminal resolution.
