Can I report anonymously?

A report may be completed anonymously; however, we strongly recommend you provide your name and contact information to allow a Care Team member to contact you should they need additional information regarding the report.

The Care Team’s collaboration with you is private and will not be shared with fellow students, parents, staff, or faculty without your permission or a legitimate reason to do so.
