Office of the Ombud
The Office of the Ombud helps individual members of the University community explore and assert their rights and interests within the University and improves the fairness and effectiveness of the University’s systems and operations.
SafeCampus helps faculty, staff and students prevent violence and be prepared to respond when it occurs. SafeCampus can be contacted to anonymously discuss safety and well-being concerns for yourself or others. SafeCampus listens to your concerns and provides individualized care, support and safety plans tailored to your situation. Caring, trained professionals will talk you through your options and connect you with additional resources when requested. Responses are adapted to the needs of the individuals involved in any situation. SafeCampus considers how a person’s self-identified culture, sexual orientation, gender, race, immigration status or ability may impact their experience with violence or threats of violence.

UW Bias Reporting Tool
If you encounter or suspect incidents of bias, you are encouraged to file a report, which will be reviewed by the UW’s Bias Incident Advisory Committee. Whenever possible, bias reports will be reviewed within two to four business days. Anonymous reports also may be submitted. Individuals who submit a report and identify themselves may be contacted for more detail and to provide options for combating the bias. Potential outcomes include receiving support and information about available resources, coordinating support for community healing and educational outreach, assessing avenues for minimizing or eliminating future incidents of bias, and/or cataloguing the incident.
