Reporting Party Information
While anonymous reports are accepted, you are STRONGLY encouraged to provide your contact information in case further detail is needed in understanding the situation or identifying the individual of concern. This also allows us to acknowledge your submission.
I understand that furnishing false information is a violation of university policy.
Though the name of the referrer will not initially be provided, a referred person will be given specific information about the concerning behavior so that they can appropriately respond to the concern. It is likely that the referred individual will determine who made the report based on the circumstances.
While the BIT team will acknowledge all submissions, only limited information will be shared regarding the situation, as FERPA and HIPAA confidentiality applies in many cases.
