Harassment, Discrimination, & Sexual Misconduct Online Report Form

This online form may be completed by any member of the Bethel College community who has experienced or otherwise become aware of an incident that may constitute harassment, discrimination, sexual misconduct, retaliation, or any other violation of the Equal Opportunity, Harassment, & Non-Discrimination Policy and Procedures. Sexual misconduct incudes sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, and sexual harassment.

Filing a report with Bethel College does not constitute filing a police report.

When to submit a report:

  • If you are unsure if you want to pursue an investigation at this time, but are interested in receiving supporting measures.
  • If you are reporting actual or suspected misconduct that someone else experienced. All Bethel College employees, unless specifically identified as confidential resources, are Mandated Reporters and are thus obligated to report incidents disclosed to them or which they witness first-hand. But students and community members are also encouraged to report.

Reporting ensures that individuals have access to all of the available support services and options afforded to them by both law and policy. This also helps Bethel College identify and address any trends or systemic problems. Reporting harassment, discrimination, or sexual misconduct helps keep our campus community safe.
