Culture of Respect

The University of Rochester is taking a number of important steps to strengthen policies, clarify processes, and expand resources to support diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. We invite you to join us in this endeavor.


Form to Report Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Dating/Domestic Violence, Stalking, or Sexual Exploitation

The University of Rochester is committed to providing a safe environment to work, learn, live, and socialize together without fear of sexual assault, harassment, or discrimination. Students, faculty, staff, visitors, and others may use a new online form to file an initial report about sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression.
