* Discrimination and Harassment Complaints submitted via the bias incident form are informal in nature and their intended outcomes are educational, or restorative, in nature. If the student filing the complaint wishes to file a formal complaint that may result in disciplinary action taken against the faculty/staff/student whom the complaint is filed against, then the student making the complaint must file a formal complaint. In addition to the process outlined here, Title IX complaints are required to follow additional regulations provided by the federal government.

** This step occurs when the Complainant wishes to pursue a formal investigation. If a Complainant decides not to participate in a formal investigation, an investigation will only ensue if there is evidence to suggest the Respondent may repeat the behavior (e.g. prior reports).
