Submit An Incident Report
All MIT community members are encouraged to report any concern about discrimination, discriminatory harassment, and bias.
Please use the buttons below to report your concern to IDHR online, including to report anonymously.
I have a concern about a student's conduct.
I have a concern about a faculty or staff's conduct.
I have a general climate concern or I don’t know the identity or affiliation of the person whose behavior is concerning me.
To learn more about what happens when you submit an incident report, please visit our Reporting Options page.
Reporting just means letting IDHR know something has occurred. It does not automatically trigger a formal investigation process. If what you share raises a concern about community safety, IDHR may assess further, but you as an impacted person never have to participate in that process if you do not want to.
If you’re concerned about retaliation or identifying yourself, you can use an anonymous email address or forgo including your contact information when filling out a reporting form. Without contact information, our ability to follow up is limited. If you’re not sure you are ready to fill out a reporting form, you can also connect with confidential resources who will not inform anyone of what you share without your permission.
If you share some form of contact information, IDHR staff will reach out via email to see if you’d like to set up a time to talk about available resources, supportive measures, and resolution pathways.
