Anyone who witnesses or views the evidence of an act of intolerance is encouraged to report the incident. A person need not be the direct target of an act of intolerance to report it.
A. Reporting during an ongoing incident
If there is an immediate threat to personal safety or property, or if someone has been physically injured, the target, witness, residential staff member, or third party should call the police immediately. Call 9-911 from a campus phone, or 911 from a cell phone or off-campus phone. Tell the dispatcher what is happening and remain on the line with the dispatcher.
B. Reporting after an incident has occurred - All reporting should be made through the Acts of Intolerance website, Report an act of intolerance button.
Before proceeding to Step 3, do not tamper with, touch, remove, or destroy physical evidence.
If the police have been called or if it is believed that a crime has been committed and the police will be called to conduct an investigation, the police will collect and process the evidence. After the police have documented the evidence, the police or one of the persons listed in Step 3 will notify University Facilities or the University Housing office to have the material removed.
If the police are not going to be called, the offending material should be removed or covered ONLY after consultation with one of the persons listed in Step 3.
