The University of Minnesota and Medical School has a few different options for reporting incidents.
The Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action was founded in 1972 to ensure that all University community members uphold federal and state civil rights laws and regulations, as well as University equal opportunity practices. The EOAA investigates complaints about discrimination; harassment, including sexual harassment; sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, stalking, and relationship violence; nepotism; and retaliation. The EOAA provides educational programming and is responsible for recommending changes and making revisions to relevant University policies and procedures.
The Bias Response and Referral Network (BRRN), along with other campus partners, works to respond to bias incidents on the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus in ways that support those most impacted, promote education and dialogue, and affirm the University's commitment to equity and diversity, free speech, and academic freedom.
Members of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus community and visitors to campus can report bias incidents to the BRRN by:
- Submitting a report using UReport;
- Calling the BRRN at 612-314-3850;
- Reaching out to a member of the BRRN; or
- Emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Office for Conflict Resolution (OCR) provides both formal and informal conflict resolution services to non-bargaining University faculty, staff, and students who are experiencing employment-related conflicts. The OCR serves all system campuses and is a neutral, independent office.
