Report a Concern

How to Report a Concern...

For immediately dangerous and life threatening situations, please contact Public Safety. Call 911 from UD Campus Phone or Call (937) 229-2121 from all other phones.


For all other concerns, please scroll down for questions that will help you determine where to report your concern. Links or contact details are available under each question.  

The University of Dayton was founded on our Catholic and Marianist traditions and we strive to live out these values through our commitment to community for the common good.  We are unfortunately unable to oust all injustices from our campus community. You may notice (or be the recipient) of an unjust act or have a concern within our campus community. We encourage individuals to try to work out concerns with the affected individual(s) or report our concerns to a supervisor. At times you may not be comfortable doing so and if the matter appears to be criminal, do not go to the affected individual(s) first.  In these circumstances we have designed avenues  (listed below) for you to report your concern and ensure help.  We encourage everyone to support and strengthen our campus community by reporting their concerns. 

Please note these resources are not monitored 24/7. For immediate assistance (and always when you are in immediate danger or there is a life threatening situation), please contact Public Safety at 911 from a UD campus phone or 937-229-2121 from all other phones. 

Reporting frequently asked questions and avenues for filing a report:

Contact Public Safety

If you have an immediate emergency or witness something criminal in nature, contact Public Safety. The Department of Public Safety is a service oriented organization which provides police, emergency medical, student transportation, and parking services to the University community 24 hours per day, seven days a week.

Additional Public Safety information available here or call 911 from a campus phone or 937-229-2121 on any non-University phone. 

Report any COVID-19 Violations Here

UD students may use this form to report behavior that violates the Flyer COVID-19 Agreement and other safety protocols. Please provide sufficient detail to support your report being investigated.  

Contact the Privately Speaking Line

If you have a concern and are unsure which reporting avenue you should use or if confidentiality or retaliation is a concern, use the Privately Speaking Line. A report can be made online or by making a toll-free phone call. Both methods are administered by Navex/EthicsPoint who is a third party contractor that maintains the confidentiality of the reporter. 

Additional Privately Speaking Line information available or file a report here.

Contact the Equity Compliance Office

If you or someone you know in the University community has had an experience of sexual violence, you have options.  Be sure you are in a safe place, consider whether medical attention is needed, and talk with someone.  For confidential assistance contact an advocate at Artemis in Dayton call (937) 461-HELP (4357) or RAINN's national hotline at (800) 656-4673, or students can meet with a clinician at the University Counseling Center 937-229-3141

Contact the Equity Compliance Office

The University does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, creed, religion, ancestry, national or ethnic origin, sex/gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, genetic information, military status, veteran status, familial status or any other protected category under applicable local, state or federal law, ordinance or regulation.  Harassment constitutes a form of discrimination that is prohibited by University policy. 

Unwelcome conduct that is based on an individual’s actual or perceived membership in a protected class, or other conduct that diminishes the worth of a person, is incompatible with our fundamental commitment as a Catholic university conducted in the Marianist tradition, and therefore is prohibited by the University.

Contact the C.A.R.E. Team

The Campus Awareness Response and Evaluation Team (C.A.R.E.) has been created to help students. There are often many outward signs that a student is in distress. Knowing what to notice, what to do and what to avoid could be the lifeline your student needs to get help. Additionally, reporting ‘odd’ behavior that causes you concern may just be one more piece of a larger puzzle that the C.A.R.E. team needs to provide that student with assistance. 

Additional C.A.R.E. information available or file a report here.
