Reporting Concerns

"We together must commit to ensuring that the University of Notre Dame is a place where reports of any ethical or professional misbehavior are taken seriously, reported promptly, investigated professionally, and addressed appropriately.  I ask you to join me in continuing to foster a culture at Notre Dame where doing the right thing—the ethical thing—informs all we do."

- Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., President

If you see something, say something.


How to Report

For University Employees:

If you have a concern and feel comfortable sharing it with your supervisor or another administrator, this can be a good place to begin.

For Notre Dame Students, Faculty, and Staff:

Contact the Office of Institutional Equity

The Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) is committed to promoting an equitable educational and work environment that is free from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.  Anyone who experiences, observes, or learns about possible acts of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation can report such acts to OIE to learn about potential avenues to address and rectify the matter.
