Office of Institutional Equity – Online Report Form


The Office of Institutional Equity investigates complaints of sexual misconduct and sexual violence, protected class discrimination and harassment, and related retaliation. If you would like to maintain privacy and do not wish OIE to investigate or address the matter, our office must weigh that request against the University’s obligation to provide a safe, nondiscriminatory environment for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors. If you provide contact information and OIE staff member will follow up to discuss your options.

This form is designed to provide students, staff, faculty, applicants, visitors, or others with an on-line method to report specific information related to an alleged incident(s) of discrimination, harassment (including sexual misconduct), or retaliation.

Procedure:

You may file a complaint with the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) in person, by regular mail, or by email. Generally OIE will need all of the information below. To discuss your complaint with a member of OIE, you can schedule a meeting in person, via telephone (575) 646-3635, or email at equity@nmsu.edu before you submit the form online.

Confidentiality and Privacy:

Complaints are confidential and will not be disclosed to anyone who does not have a need to know. This requirement applies to complainants, respondents, witnesses, and any other involved with a complaint.

If you believe criminal conduct has occurred, then you should make a criminal complaint to the police. The criminal justice system and this Policy are separate procedures: however, reports must be made under both procedures to ensure that both will go forward. The NMSU Police Department telephone number is (575) 646-3311.
