Bias, discrimination, and harassment incidents
If you experience or witness an incident of discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct (PDF), or a bias incident involving a UVM affiliate, you are encouraged to submit a report to the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity (AAEO). AAEO will provide you with information about your options, including process referrals for potential policy or legal violations, and offer individualized support measures to address the impact felt, as appropriate.
The bias, discrimination, and harassment incident reporting form can be submitted anonymously.
If you are unsure about reporting or would like to speak to someone confidentially, please review the confidential support services.
If you are a UVM Reporter, you must file a report as detailed below in the UVM Reporters and the Clery Act section.
LiveSafe is a safety communications platform and risk mitigation tool. It provides campus community members the ability to share information about emerging safety and security risks and connects them to resources across the university and in the community. The UVM LiveSafe app can be used by UVM students, employees, and visitors.
