The University strongly encourages prompt reporting of conduct that may violate this Policy. Reports of Prohibited Conduct can be made directly to OIE. Some forms of Prohibited Conduct may also constitute crimes and the University strong encourages individuals to make reports to law enforcement including the University of Michigan Police Department (UMPD), or to the University’s Office for Institutional Equity, or both.
Any individual (including a student, employee, visitor, guest, or other third party), not just the Claimant, may make a report under this Policy. An individual may choose to report to law enforcement, the University, to both, or not at all. Support and resources are always available regardless of the chosen reporting option.
Making a report to law enforcement or the University by contacting a reporting option (as listed below) means that the report will be shared with others as appropriate.
