Students, faculty members and staff members have the right to learn, teach and work in a setting free of mistreatment, harassment and discrimination. If you have concerns related to treatment you have received from others, we have processes and resources to help you resolve the issue.
If you have experienced discrimination or harassment in violation of UB’s Discrimination and Harassment Policy, you can also consult with the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI). EDI ensures UB’s compliance with policies covering discrimination, harassment, accommodations, equal opportunity and child protection. (You can consult anonymously if you do not want to disclose your name.)
Call EDI at (716) 645-2266 or visit EDI’s website.
If you feel you have been subjected to mistreatment and/or conduct that violates UB’s Discrimination and Harassment Policy, or if you have witnessed behavior you believe violates the policy, you can report the incident via EthicsPoint. EthicsPoint is a comprehensive and confidential reporting tool to help the UB community address abuse and report any incidents related to harassment, discrimination and mistreatment. (You can report anonymously if you do not want to disclose your name.)
University policy prohibits retaliation against individuals who, in good faith, provide reports or complaints of incidents of mistreatment and/or violation of this policy. Claims of retaliation will be investigated separately from the initial report. If you believe you have experienced retaliation for reporting discriminatory or harassing conduct, contact the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
