Completing an Online Discrimination Complaint Report
Any member of the Northeastern community who becomes aware of possible discrimination is strongly encouraged to report the incident promptly through the Online Discrimination Report form which exists to assist the complainant in formulating a concise statement of their allegations and is sent directly to the Office for University Equity and Compliance.
This includes all allegations of discrimination including those based on race, color, religion, religious creed, genetic information, sex (including pregnancy or pregnancy related condition, sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, domestic violence), gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, ancestry, veteran or disability status.
Upon receipt of a report, the OUEC and other designated individuals will work with all parties involved in an alleged incident discrimination. We will work to provide any appropriate interim measures or remedies to address their safety, health and well being. Should you be the Complainant or the Respondent, you will be provided a notification that outlines your rights and available resources.
Please provide as much information as possible – if you are unsure about something, please leave it blank.
Please contact the Office for University Equity and Compliance by email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a meeting to discuss your rights, options and resources surrounding university policies prohibiting discrimination.
Conversations with members of the Office for University Equity and Compliance are kept private, and information about reported incidents will only be shared only with individuals who “need to know” in order to assist in the assessment, investigation, and resolution of the allegation. In all cases, the wishes of the person initiating the conversation are given full consideration.
