While we strive to be a civil and cooperative community, we recognize that these values may be impacted by someone's behavior or actions.  If you find yourself in a situation where you need support or to report the conduct of members of our community, every staff member in the Office of Student Affairs is available and willing to assist you.  If you are more comfortable speaking with other College of Law faculty or staff members, we encourage you to do so.  You also have the option of going directly to other central University resources, if that is your preference. 

Please understand that depending on the nature of the complaint, the College of Law may be required to direct those complaints to the main Division of Student Affairs, Title IX officer or other university administrators for review and resolution. The College of Law’s Office of Student Affairs works closely with the Division of Student Affairs when complaints are directed to them.
