Report a Bias Incident

If you are currently in a situation where immediate medical, police or other emergency services are needed, call 911 or the University Campus Police at 801-585-2677 (801-585-COPS). To file a complaint regarding discrimination or sexual harassment, contact the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action (OEO/AA) at 801.581.8365. If you have witnessed or experienced a bias incident within the University of Utah community, you may use this form to report it anonymously or with your name. Any act of intolerance, motivated wholly or in part by bias or prejudice against an individual’s race, color, ethnicity, age, religion, size, disability, national origin, language, gender, veteran status, identity expression, sexual orientation or age—regardless of severity—can be reported using this form.

All reports will be confidential to the extent permitted by the laws, University policies and its core values. The Office for Inclusive Excellence utilizes the bias incident reports submitted through this website to assess campus climate and to better understand how to educate the University campus about bias incidents. If a bias incident report alleges criminal or illegal conduct, including illegal discrimination or harassment, the Office for Inclusive Excellence is required by law to forward that report to the University Police and/or to the OEO/AA for follow-up. If you believe you have been the victim of criminal or illegal conduct, we strongly recommend that you contact the police and/or the OEO/AA directly as indicated above.
