REPORTING FAQ

When should I ask for help?

  • You think you have experienced prohibited discrimination or harassment, but are not sure and want to ask someone about your concerns.
  • You need more information on AUB’s related policies and processes.
  • You want to talk about what to do if you have experienced sex discrimination or sexual misconduct, or explore what the university administration can do to help
  • You have observed an incident and want to report it or seek guidance.
  • You want to submit an informal or formal complaint to the University.

Will my conversations and reporting be confidential? What about my privacy?

Communications are kept as private as possible and your wishes are given full priority. However, some information concerning incidents of sexual misconduct may need to be shared with relevant administrators in order to adequately address the behavior and conduct an investigation if warranted. Incident reports must also be shared with the relevant authorities if there is an issue of community safety.

Confidential and free support services are available for students in the Counseling Center of the Office of Student Affairs (Ext. 3196). Please consult their Confidentiality Policy for legal obligations in specific circumstances that may prevent strict confidentiality.

Can I report anonymously?
Yes! You can submit an anonymous report through EthicsPoint. This system will ensure the person named in the complaint does not receive access to your report. Please note that anonymous reports may restrict administrative ability to fully address the reported conduct, but it is better to report anonymously than to keep it to yourself.

I’m afraid of retaliation if I report. How can AUB help?
AUB policy prohibits retaliation against anyone filing a complaint of discrimination or discriminatory harassment, or against others involved in the investigation of the complaint.

Other Reporting Options
You also have the right to raise concerns or submit a complaint to the US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, which oversees compliance with Title IX.
