Report a Bias Incident

The Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office handles student, employee, and visitor reports of discrimination and harassment based on age, color, disability, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex (including gender, gender expression, or gender identity), sexual orientation, and veteran status. This includes reports of sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment and sexual violence. Our office also handles reports of relationship violence and stalking.

Report an incident to the EOC 


SAFE.UNC.EDU is the main portal for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, and visitors at UNC-Chapel Hill for resources and information about discrimination, harassment, sexual violence, interpersonal violence, and stalking. It includes information not only about the response and prevention work of EOC, but also of our campus and community partners. The website was created by UNC-Chapel Hill departments, offices, and centers that provide response and prevention services.

You have the option to report to law enforcement and/or the University. Individuals can report to both of these spaces, only one, or neither. You can also choose to report anonymously (without identifying yourself).

University Ombuds

The University Ombuds Office is a safe place where all Carolina staff, faculty, students and administrators are welcome to come and talk in confidence about any campus issue, problem, or dispute. Our office supplements, but does not replace, the University’s formal channels, such as the grievance policy.

Contact the Ombuds Office 

Carolina Ethics Line

Carolina Ethics Line provides a simple, anonymous way to report possible unethical or improper conduct, and/or violations of University policies and procedures, regulations, or state and federal laws. Carolina Ethics Line is not intended to replace existing channels of communication and reporting systems on campus. It is available as an additional platform if you do not feel comfortable telling your supervisor or the designated University office about your concerns.

Violence in the Workplace

Violent acts, whether on-duty or off-duty, affect the ability of all employees to perform their jobs. The University will apply all useful management tools to accomplish the dual purpose of reducing the effects of violence on victims and the University community as well as hold perpetrators of violence accountable for their actions. Prohibited behaviors include, but are not limited to: intimidation, bullying, stalking, threats, physical attack, property damage, or domestic and family violence. This includes acts of violence committed by or against University employees. Such incidents may also involve students, clients, visitors or vendors.
