Please Provide a brief description of the incident
Tips: In recalling the incident to the best of your ability, please do not censor explicit language or sanitize obscene behaviors. Do not diagnose the Respondent or any individuals related to the complaint. Stick to factual, not editorial information; for example, report that, “The Respondent is repeatedly contacting me outside of class despite my repeated requests to stop vs. the Respondent “is a paranoid stalker, who won’t stop e-mailing me.” Please also specify whether there were witnesses to the incident.

Terms: The information I am submitting as part of this complaint is factual and complete to the best of my knowledge. I understand that submission of this form does not require Excelsior University to conduct a formal investigation into my allegations; that knowingly providing false statements is a violation of the Excelsior University Code of Conduct and is a violation of Excelsior University employee policies, both subject to disciplinary action; and that retaliation as a result of filing or participating in the investigation of a complaint is strictly prohibited. Retaliatory conduct could result in dismissal from the University for students and discipline up to and including termination of employment for employees.
