Fieldwork incident reporting + support
Simultaneous to working with the Office of Civil Rights & Title IX, research team members may also consult with designated personnel stationed at the off-campus/off-site research location or elsewhere to manage immediate situations that require de-escalation or other problem-solving measures. Names and contact information for these individuals should be included in the Safe & Inclusive Fieldwork plan for each project.
Other formal reporting mechanisms
The following offices serve as formal notice to the university and legally require follow-up with all those involved. It is appropriate to submit almost any incident to the Office of Civil Rights & Title IX (above) as they can investigate a situation and help you get the support you need from other campus resources.
The Employee Relations team partners with employees and managers to ensure that KU offers everyone a positive, constructive and efficient work environment.

To report an incident of alleged non-academic misconduct by an individual, please fill out the Incident Report Form for individuals. KU's Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards will review incidents to determine an appropriate response.
The Ombuds Office is a confidential, impartial, informal and independent office where members of the campus community can discuss issues they may be facing as a student, staff or faculty member.
