Reporting an Incident

Cornell community members who observe an action that negatively impacts our commitment to diversity and inclusion are encouraged to report it to the university by using the form located at biasconcerns.cornell.edu. Reporting, understanding, and preventing unacceptable behaviors such as bias, sexual misconduct, and hazing are essential to maintaining our caring community. Below are avenues for reporting these incidents.

Reporting Bias, Discrimination and Harassment 

To report bias incidents or related concerns, complete the online reporting form or send email to report_bias@cornell.edu.  Know that confidential care and support for individuals affected by bias are available. More information about Cornell’s Reporting Bias System is also available. Cornell is committed to maintaining a bias-free climate based on civility, decency, and respect.   

Reporting Sexual Misconduct

Complete the online reporting form or send an email to nosexualmisconduct@cornell.edu if you need to report gender-based harrassment, sexual harrassment, sexual assault, domestic and dating violence, stalking, sexual exploitation, or other forms of sexual misconduct. Complete information about reporting options and help with accomodations is available on Cornell's Title IX website. The SHARE website has many resources to help you get support in the event of sexual harassment or assault, including a complete list of confidential resources. Policy 6.4 provides definitions and explains the procedures employed for investigating and adjudicating allegations of sexual misconduct.

Reporting Hazing

While being part of a campus group can be one of the most meaningful aspects of student life, hazing is often a hidden, but serious problem that undermines the value of these experiences and poses risk of physical and mental harm for many individuals. Complete the online reporting form to report hazing activity. Confidential channels for reporting hazing are available on Cornell’s hazing prevention website.
