Resources for Reporting Concerns

Our goal at NC State is to continually work to ensure a safe and responsive environment for faculty, staff, students and visitors. NC State provides several ways for the campus community to report concerns.

According to NC State’s Equal Opportunity, Non-Discrimination and Affirmative Action Policy (POL 04.25.05), the State of North Carolina has a responsibility “to provide equality of opportunity in education and employment for all students and employees.” In doing so, we must prohibit any action that unjustly discriminates, harasses, intimidates, threatens, retaliates against or creates an abusive or hostile educational or working environment for any student, faculty or staff member of NC State University. When these incidents occur, it is our obligation to investigate and remedy the situation including holding violators accountable.

If you are the victim of such negative behavior or witness it happen to others, we encourage you to report the incident immediately. There are several ways you can do that.

If an individual has questions or concerns about disclosing an incident to the university, they can speak confidentially to the NC State Counseling Center, Student Health and the Gynecology Services clinic, Student Legal Services, the Faculty and Staff Assistant Program or the Sexual Assault Helpline (919.515.4444). More information for all of these resources is listed below.

It is important to note that not all resources are confidential unless stated.

Campus Police

Campus Security Authority Incident Report Form

Use the Campus Security Authority Incident Report Form to pursue criminal action for incidents of harassment that may also be crimes under state criminal law, including sexual violence, relationship violence or stalking. The NC State Police Department will formally investigate these incidents or assist complainants in contacting local law enforcement for incidents that occur outside of the NC State Police Department’s jurisdiction. If you are ever in an emergency situation, immediately call 911. To report a non-emergency incident to law enforcement, call 919.515.3000.

Online Crime Report

The Online Crime Report Form should be used for crimes involving damage to personal or state property valued at less than $1,000 or theft of personal or state property valued at less than $1,000 that is taken without your permission or property that is missing or lost.

Online Welfare Report

This Online Welfare Report Form should be used when reporting concern for someone who has experienced relationship violence, stalking, harassment, signs of poor psychological well-being, signs of poor medical well-being or possession of a prohibited weapon where there is no immediate threat or danger.
