Undergraduate Student Support

We partner with Student Affairs, Academic Success, and other student-serving units to ensure that the student experience and campus climate are inclusive and equitable.

Undergraduate Student Concern & Retention Pathway

Navigating a large campus can be confusing. The Report It website provides contact information for reporting concerns and issues related to several topics, including: accessibility, campus maintenance, crimes/safety, discrimination, events, health/wellness, integrity/ethics, student and employee conduct, and technology.

Note, it is appropriate to submit incidents of potential sexual misconduct, discrimination, harassment, dating/domestic violence, stalking, retaliation to the Office of Civil Rights & Title IX as they have investigative authority and are very connected to campus and community support resources.

University employees, are mandatory reporters. That means whether committed against them or someone else, they are required to report incidents of sexual misconduct, discrimination, harassment, dating/domestic violence, stalking, or retaliation.

Pathway for Undergraduate Student Concerns

Department Chair or Director

If your concern is not specifically related to harassment or discrimination, you should reach out the relevant department's Chairperson or Director. They should assist you in resolving your concern or refer you to others on campus you can assist, such as Student Affairs or Academic Success.

Equity Advisor

If the department chairperson or director is not helpful in addressing or resolving your concern, you should reach out to your Equity Advisor. They serve as a liaison between the Office of DEIB and each academic and administrative unit on campus. The Equity Advisor is a point person to ensure that equitable practices and an inclusive climate are facilitated and maintained for all students, staff, and faculty on KU’s campuses.

Dean or Vice Provost

If your Equity Advisor is unresponsive to your concern, you should reach out to the Dean or Vice Provost who leads the unit. In that communication, you may copy the Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging, Student Affairs, and/or Academic Success.

Concerned about yourself or a fellow student?

If you are a student, staff, faculty, or family member who has concerns about a specific student’s behaviors and/or well-being and do not know where to turn, Student Affairs Student Care Referral Team strives to develop, facilitate, and coordinate a university-wide program of care and support for students.

Submit a care referral.
