Find a trusted individual to hear your concerns. Speak to your advisor, supervisor, local HR representative, student resident assistant/ resident hall director, or staff and faculty discrimination and harassment advisor. University offices include Workforce Policy and Labor Relations, Title IX Coordinators, Victim Advocate, and Judicial Administrator (for concerns about student conduct).
Confidential counseling is available to faculty and staff from the Faculty/Staff Assistance Program, and to students from Gannett's Counseling and Psychological Services. Other confidential resources include the Victim Advocate, LGBT Resource Center, Cornell United Religious Work, the Ombudsman, the Advocacy Center, and the Women's Resource Center.
For sexual violence or assault, contact Cornell University Police at (607) 255-1111 or a Title IX coordinator at (607) 255-0041 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also report a concern online.
In most cases, your concerns will be kept confidential. Only those who need to know will be informed. You will be given options and resources to aid you in resolving the situation.
If, however, a crime has been committed or someone is at risk of harm, there is an obligation to report the incident to the appropriate authority in order to keep you and others in the Cornell community safe. In that event, the matter still will be handled discretely and with your knowledge.
