A written report to the IO is required to initiate any process relating to allegations of sexual misconduct. Learn more about IO processes.
You can confidentially discuss your reporting options and have all of the IO’s processes explained before submitting a report. Email or call us to set up a no-obligation consultation meeting.
The UBC Equity and Inclusion Office (EIO) offers confidential services that are available to students, faculty or staff members who believe they may have a human rights-based discrimination concern. They should be contacted first to determine the best course of action.
The EIO can offer a confidential consultation to discuss options such as filing a formal complaint with our office. Request an EIO consultation using this button.
