Reporting Options

Concern for a Student

If you’re concerned about a UAlbany student, file a CARE Report with the Office of the Dean of Students. 

Expressing concern soon after an issue or incident can help with early intervention and success. 

Hazing

If you’ve experienced or witnessed hazing, file a Hazing Complaint with the Office of the Dean of Students.  

Hazing is any reckless or intentional conduct connected to the initiation into or affiliation with any organization that degrades, humiliates or endangers the mental or physical health of any person — regardless of the person’s willingness to participate.  

Hazing can also include activities that damage, destroy or remove any public or private property. 

Bias Incident

If you’ve experienced or witnessed a bias act, file a Bias Incident Report with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. 

You can report any bias-related incident, even if it isn’t a crime or a direct violation of the Student Code of Conduct, University discrimination policy or any other institutional policy. It is important that these incidents are recognized, reported, investigated and reconciled.
