Confidential Resources and Support

If you have experienced an act of hate, bias, discrimination or harassment and would like to speak with a confidential resource, conversations with staff in these units are not considered official reports. You can speak openly without giving up any control over your situation. These units will not report your concerns to anyone else, and they will not take action toward resolving your concerns without your consent.

To file an official report, please contact HDAPP
