Assistance with Reporting

The UM-Flint community is encouraged to report potential sexual misconduct through the following channels. We are committed to providing safe ways for community members to report an incident. The staff of these offices are welcoming and sensitive to student, faculty, staff and community concerns. Resources are confidential where noted.

Confidential Resources

Information about or assistance with sexual misconduct policy or support resources may be obtained from a variety of university resources. Prior to filing a report, some individuals may find it helpful to consult with a confidential resource. All information shared will remain confidential to the extent permitted by law and university policy. Discussions with representatives from these offices are not considered a formal report to the university and, without additional action, will not result in intervention.

Reporting Process

The university addresses every report that is brought to its attention. For cases that proceed to an investigation, a written report is developed and provided to all parties who participate in the process. One's affiliation with the University will indicate which procedure is used. In the event that any corrective action or sanctions occur, the respondent may request a review of that actuion under the appropriate process.

When the respondent is a student, the process follows the Student Procedures (view a flowchart detailing the full investigation process). 

When the respondent is a faculty or staff member or third party, the process follows the Employee Procedures (view a flowchart detailing the full investigation process).

You can find information about the university’s compliance hotline and other compliance-related information on the Ethics, Integrity and Compliance website.
