Reporting

UVM C.A.R.E. Form:

CARE Form

The University of Vermont's number one priority is to support a healthy and safe community. Occasionally, members of our community find themselves or others in need of additional help and support. If you are concerned about a UVM community member or are concerned about a specific event, we encourage you to contact the Dean of Students Office (802-656-3380).

If you would like to remain anonymous, you can report your concerns on the University C.A.R.E. Form.

UVM Reporting - Rights via our Policy!

  • Individuals who are victims of hazing and who truthfully report the activities shall not be individually charged with a violation of this regulation.
  • Individuals who have knowledge of a hazing incident, but who did not participate, and truthfully report the activities shall not be individually charged with a violation of this regulation in relation to that particular incident.
  • When reviewing a case, consideration will be given to whether an organization or group has self-reported a hazing behavior and identified individuals who are responsible.

Mandatory Reporting - CSA Reminder

University officials are required to report possible hazing incidents in a prompt and effective manner to University Police Services. Students and other members of the University community are strongly encouraged to report possible hazing incidents as soon as possible to University Police Services.

To maximize safety, all reports of hazing should first be directed to University Police Services.

The Chief of Police Services, or designee, will promptly take steps to investigate and respond to hazing reports consistent with the exercise of reasonable professional discretion, including the convening of responsible University administrators.
