Please remember that your formal complaint must be in writing. In addition:

  • It should state the name of the alleged harasser (if known)
  • It should describe with reasonable specificity the incident(s) of alleged harassment, including the date and place of such incident(s)
  • It must be in the Complainant's or Reporter's own words, and may not be authored by others, including family members, advisors, or attorneys
  • It should have an attached list of any sources of information (for example, witnesses, correspondence, records, etc.) that the Complainant or Reporter believes may be relevant to the investigation. However, a complaint should not be delayed if such sources of information are unknown or unavailable.
