Report a Concern

When you file a report, we can use all of our available resources to ensure the best possible outcome for your case, or provide as much support as possible if you decide not to file.

Reporting Options

NC State strives to ensure that students, faculty, staff and visitors are safe and not subject to further harassment or retaliation.

Should you experience or witness discrimination, harassment or retaliation, you have the option to file a complaint with NC State University and/or NC State Police.

Filing a complaint helps to inform the university of concerning behavior and conduct impacting our community and permits outreach to those directly affected to promote their safety and well-being.

You have the option to file an anonymous report or a confidential report. You can also choose a report that will lead to either a university investigation or a criminal investigation. Your options include but are not limited to the following.

File with the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED)

  • File a report with the Title IX coordinator in the Equal Opportunity and Equity unit within the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED).
  • The student flowchart provides details for the process for student respondents.
  • The employee flowchart provides details for the process for employee respondents.
