Report a Concern

Report a Concern | File a Complaint | Report an Incident

St. Kate’s strives to receive and address employee complaints, concerns, and reported incidents as soon as practicable and with respect to all parties involved. University policies with specific complaints, concerns, and incident processes are included in the St. Catherine University employee handbook, and at My St. Kate's under University Policies.

False reporting and retaliation are serious violations of the St. Catherine University policy. We expect that all reports will be made in good faith. If an individual knowingly submits a false report or takes retaliatory action towards a reporter, witness, or other party involved, that individual is subject to disciplinary action by the University as outlined in our campus policies.

Report Form for Conduct or Policy Violation

Report Bias, Harassment, Discrimination, General Harassment and Bullying

St. Catherine University is committed to cultivating an intentionally diverse and inclusive environment, where the dignity, worth and unique gifts of each community member is valued and respected. As part of that commitment, the University is committed to a work and educational environment that is free from harassment, discrimination, and bullying.

What is a Bias Incident?

A bias incident is an act of bigotry, harassment, or intimidation that are not crimes, violence, threats or property damage that is motivated in whole or in part by bias based on an individual’s or group’s actual or perceived race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Bias often stems from fear, misunderstanding, hatred, or stereotypes and may be intentional or unintentional.

Examples of Bias Incidents

Bias incidents can be verbal, physical, or visual. This language and behavior often contribute to or create an unsafe or unwelcoming environment. Some examples include:

  • Name-calling; using a racial, ethnic, or other slur to identify someone; or using degrading language.
  • Creating racist or derogatory images/drawings.
  • Imitating someone with a disability or imitating someone’s cultural norm or practice.

All employees, students, and other University community members are encouraged to use the following form to report incidents of bias, discriminatory, harassing or bullying behaviors that may be a potential violation of the University’s Harassment, Discrimination, General Harassment, or Bullying Policy.

Your report will initiate the beginning of a fact-finding process to gather additional information and to determine the nature of any investigation that will be conducted by the University.

 

Please note that the University’s ability to respond effectively may be limited by the level of information provided and/or the anonymity of the complainant. The Bias Incident Response team meets every two weeks to review reports. A Bias Incident Response team member will reach out to follow up.

Inclusive Excellence

Report Sexual Assault, Sexual Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct

St. Catherine University seeks to foster and maintain a community of mutual respect and concern for all of its members. There can be no greater violation of the terms of that community, or of the essential dignity of any member of it, than an act of sexual assault, sexual harassment, or other forms of sexual misconduct described in this Policy. These acts constitute the deepest affront to University standards and will not be tolerated in any form.

The purpose of the form is to report Sexual Assault, Sexual Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct, all Title IX related incidents. We are required to provide an anonymous reporting form which is met by having this online form. For the victim/survivor completing this form, it is your choice whether to remain anonymous.
