In our efforts to support the academic and professional success of all members of the SEFS community, we encourage members of the community to identify incidents or events that affect their sense of safety in the community. We take reports of these incidents and events, large or small, very seriously. In doing so, we are careful to respect privacy, confidentiality, and due process in recording and responding to such reports. Given the trauma associated with some of these incidents, we also recognize the value of services provided by the university to support the mental and physical health and safety of those who experience these incidents. We will track reports made by any of the pathways described on this page so that we can observe and act on patterns that emerge.

We strive to create a community where all members feel comfortable coming forward directly with grievances, suggestions, or concerns. However, we also provide this online form for situations in which you do not feel safe approaching your advisor, supervisor, or SEFS leadership, fear retribution, or prefer anonymity for any other reason. Messages sent through that form will be forwarded to the SEFS Director, two Associate Directors, and Administrator. The names and addresses of these individuals are provided in the “Reporting Pathways” section below.
