Harvard Anonymous Reporting

Harvard University Anonymous Reporting: (877) 694-2276, or submit online
Behaviors that make you or those around you feel unsafe or unwelcome, or are otherwise inconsistent with the values stated above may be reported anonymously through the Harvard University reporting hotline. This service is available for a variety of ethical, integrity, safety, security, and compliance concerns and may be used by anyone including, but not limited to, students, faculty, staff, patients, vendors, contractors and visitors, anywhere in the world.

The Anonymous Reporting Hotline operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is run by an independent, third-party provider.

SEAS Employee Anonymous Reporting

The Anonymous Reporting Hotline allows employees to anonymously report violations of:

  • Ethics
  • Integrity
  • Compliance issues
  • Other irregular business practices

When you call the hotline you will speak with a third-party representative who will report your question or concern to University management for review and follow-up. You are also able to report concerns via a secure third-party website. Whether you call or make a report via the web, you will be provided with a report number to allow you to obtain updates or to provide additional information without revealing your identity.

Harvard College Anonymous Bias Reporting

Have you experienced bias, harassment, or discrimination? Use the report bias form for non-emergency incidents only. This form is anonymous.

Every effort will be made to evaluate your report promptly, however, the timing and manner in which the College addresses the report will vary depending on the information provided and whether you wish to remain anonymous. The College does not guarantee it will respond to reports. This form may be used to report a bias-motivated incident involving Harvard College students.

The information contained in this report will be shared with the appropriate University officials involved in any subsequent monitoring, investigation, or resolution of the incident. Harvard takes the reports made through this site seriously. Please make your report as accurate and truthful as possible.

Graduate Student Workplace Issue Form

If you are experiencing a problem at work, you can use this confidential form to contact the Contract Enforcement and Education Committee (CEEC). You always have the right to union representation. And in many cases, the Harvard Graduate Student Union (HGSU) can enforce your rights with the grievance and arbitration procedure. This process may include informal discussions, interim measures, formal grievance filing, and/or arbitration. Please contact us even if you are unsure that you would like to pursue a formal grievance. We will use this information to connect you with a trained CEEC officer to learn about your options and rights. Your information will not be shared beyond the Committee without your consent.
