As a student, faculty or staff member, you have options when it comes to reporting. Colgate encourages the reporting of any concerns related to sexual assault and harassment, discrimination and/or bias-motivated acts or behavior, so they can be addressed in a timely manner.
You are not alone and there are members of the campus and outside communities that are available to support you throughout the process from reporting, to investigation, and on to a criminal trial or on campus hearing.
How to Contact Us With Your Concern(s)
Submit Your Concern Online
Members of the Colgate community may make an online submission regarding prohibited conduct by filling out the appropriate form.
Speak with a Campus Community Member
Speak to a Discrimination and Harassment Team Member
In addition to or instead of filling out a form, employees and students can directly email a member of the Discrimination and Harassment Team (DHT) within the Office of Equity and Diversity.

- Andrew Fagon (firstname.lastname@example.org), Assistant Vice President for Risk and Strategic Analysis

Please note that conversations with a DHT member may not be kept in confidence due to ethical and legal obligations to investigate incidents for the protection of all members of the community.
Prohibited Conduct Response Group (PCRG)
If you’re looking to have an informal conversation for advice and referral, you can reach out to the PCRG, a group of trained employees drawn from across the institution. This group is trained to act as an informal resource for students, staff, and faculty who seek a solution to problems of discrimination, harassment, or sexual assault, or who wish to discuss their concerns before deciding whether to file a formal complaint. Learn more about the PCRG.
