Report an Incident

Reporting, understanding, and preventing unacceptable behaviors such as bias, sexual misconduct, and hazing are essential to maintaining our caring community.  Below are avenues for reporting these incidents as well as receiving confidential care and support if you need it.

Bias reporting

To report bias incidents or related concerns, send email to Know that confidential care and support for individuals affected by bias are available.  More information about Cornell’s bias reporting system is also available.  Cornell is committed to maintaining a bias-free climate based on civility, decency, and respect.   

Reporting sexual misconduct or gender discrimination

Send an email to if you need to report gender-based harrassment, sexual harrassment, sexual assault, domestic and dating violence, stalking, sexual exploitation, or other forms of sexual misconduct. Complete information about reporting options and help with accommodations is available on Cornell's Title IX website. The SHARE website has many resources to help you get support in the event of sexual harassment or assault.  Policy 6.4 provides definitions and explains the procedures employed for investigating and adjudicating allegations of sexual misconduct.

Reporting hazing

While being part of a campus group can be one of the most meaningful aspects of student life, hazing is often a hidden, but serious problem that undermines the value of these experiences and poses risk of physical and mental harm for many individuals. Confidential channels for reporting hazing are available on Cornell’s hazing prevention website.
