Discrimination Incident Reporting Form

Reporting a Discrimination Complaint

Equity and Access Services addresses and works to resolve issues of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin (including ethnicity), age, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth and related medical conditions), parenting status, marital status, political affiliation, military status (including veterans with non-dishonorable discharge, active duty military, active duty reserves, and military dependents such as spouses and children), genetic information (including family medical history), sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and disability.

File a report

Complaints may be filed using the Discrimination incident reporting form. Individuals also may email equity@vcu.edu or use the VCU Helpline. Concerns may be raised by any applicant, employee, student, alumnus or third party who feel they have been discriminated against by a member of the VCU community.

The university will make reasonable efforts to protect the privacy of participants while balancing the need to gather information to assess the report and to take steps to eliminate discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, prevent its recurrence and remedy its effects.

Privacy means that information related to a report of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation will be shared with a limited circle of university employees who need to know in order to assist in the assessment, investigation and resolution of the report.
