How Can I Make a Report?
An individual who has experienced an incident of discrimination, harassment, and/or bias may make a report in any of the following ways:
An individual who has experienced an incident of discrimination, harassment, and/or bias may decide whether or not to report and how to navigate any process, and has a voice at each step to say when and how to proceed. For example, a Complainant does not have to decide whether to pursue formal resolution methods or to provide the name(s) of the other party(ies) involved when making a report. Reporting does not mean a Complainant wishes to pursue disciplinary action or is required to participate in any process. The University will make every effort to support a Complainant’s wishes and will do so with the limited exceptions when the University must take action to protect the safety of the community.
What Does Reporting Mean?
Reporting means to provide Arcadia with information about an incident of discrimination, harassment, and/or bias. Upon receiving a report, the OECR Team will act reasonably, appropriately and fairly, providing a prompt and equitable response in order to support the individuals involved and to protect the University community.
Reporting an issue allows Arcadia to provide individuals with resources, support, and accommodations available at the University. Reporting can not only help individuals, but it also can help prevent the recurrence of any future incidents of discrimination, harassment, and/or bias. Reporting also allows the University to assess for patterns of behavior and systemic issues and address immediate threats to the safety of the community.
