Please use the Pitt Concern Connection to report a bias incident involving a member of the University of Pittsburgh community or University facilities.
Bias incidents may include, but are not limited to, incidents of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation prohibited by our Policies, Procedures, and Practices, including those related to sexual misconduct.
You may submit this report form anonymously. However, please be advised, without presented contact information, we are unable to provide follow-up, and the University’s options for response may be limited. Additional information regarding Anonymous Reporting, Confidentiality, and Retaliation is also available prior to reporting.
For questions related to reporting bias incidents, contact the Office of Civil Rights & Title IX for additional information.
How to make a report
The University appreciates your willingness to submit a report and is committed to ensuring that all community members feel safe, respected, and valued. As such, the Office of Civil Rights & Title IX will take prompt measures to investigate and stop any unlawful or prohibited conduct that interferes with access to participation in University programs and activities.
All reports will be reviewed by staff in the Office of Civil Rights &Title IX. Once you have submitted a report, if you provided contact information, a staff member will follow-up with you and may provide referrals to support resources. Reports will be reviewed during University business hours—Monday-Friday, 8:30am – 5:00pm. Reports received after business hours will generally be reviewed during the next business day.
Because the University may have an obligation to address certain reports, we cannot guarantee complete confidentiality where it would conflict with the University’s obligation to investigate meaningfully or, where warranted, take corrective action. Regardless of the situation, personal information will generally only be shared with individuals on a need-to-know basis, in compliance with University policy. In addition, retaliation for filing a bias incident report is strictly prohibited.
