Why Report?

Filing a report helps the University create a safe environment that supports the educational mission of the institution. In addition, unreported bias incidents can perpetuate continued bias and erode the campus climate.

Ways to Report

Report suspected bias incidents to the OPHD office in the follow ways:

  • Online
  • In person – make an appointment by phoning (858) 534-8298, or by emailing ophd@ucsd.edu

What to include in your report

Keep any evidence, including photographs, written notes, documents, and contact information for witnesses or other persons involved with the incident. File a report as soon as possible after the incident occurs to preserve the accuracy of information.

Note: A lack of "hard evidence" or significant time lapse since an incident occurred should not discourage you from filing a bias report but may limit what actions can be taken.

Who can report

Any member of the UC San Diego community can use this form to report bias incidents involving members of the UC San Diego community.

If you wish to remain anonymous, you may omit your name and contact information on the form. However, anonymous reports can make follow-up more difficult or unsuccessful. For the community's greater good, you're encouraged to include your contact information.

What to expect once you have filed a report

If you provide contact information, a University official will contact you to determine an appropriate response. If you choose to remain anonymous, the University will follow up on the incident as reasonably feasible, based on the information provided. For those who are willing to meet with OPHD, we will help the reporting party understand their options, including what other resources might be available.
