Submit a Report

Anyone who experiences or is aware of discriminatory conduct is urged to report the concern without delay.  

There are several ways to submit a report and receive related information, help and resources. The Nondiscrimination and Anti-harassment Policy strictly prohibits retaliation of any kind against an individual based on reporting a discrimination concern or participating in a resulting investigation.

For a report or complaint against or about an employee, visitor, vendor or contractor:

You may also contact OIE directly at (520) 621-9449 or equity@email.arizona.edu to request an appointment and to learn more about OIE’s process and procedures, and whether they potentially apply to your concern.

Preliminary Investigation and Assessment

Upon receiving a report, or being informed about potentially discriminatory conduct, OIE will:

  1. Provide information and resources to any impacted individuals,
  2. Initiate a preliminary investigation and assessment to determine whether the concern falls within OIE’s jurisdiction, and
  3. If jurisdictional, assess whether it is appropriate for OIE’s formal complaint process or an alternative resolution.
  4. Facilitate alternative resolution efforts if appropriate.

Complaint Process

Complaints may be available to address allegations of discriminatory conduct that occurred within 180 days preceding the date of the report.  The complaint process involves a:

  1. formal investigation,
  2. determination, and
  3. potential recommendation.

Administrative Review

An administrative review regarding potential discrimination may occur at the request of an administrator who has concerns that discriminatory conduct may be occurring, with or without information regarding the identity(ies) of the individual(s) who may be engaged in the conduct.
