To ensure a sacred and respectful environment we must do more than simply set expectations. We also need to establish a process of accountability to one another. We recognize that too often in the past unacceptable behaviors were allowed to continue due to fear of retaliation, explicit or implicit. Therefore, our behaviors and commitments to each other must be backed up by accountability, which requires that all feel free to report any instance of behavior that violates our community standards of practice.
Within each policy, we list the clear steps an individual can take to file a formal complaint of a violation of one of these policies and the process through which HUC-JIR will investigate and adjudicate reports brought forward.
Beyond these general guidelines, it is important that every individual in our community knows there are multiple pathways to report specific forms of misconduct – which can be done confidentially and anonymously, if one chooses.
You may contact the Student Support Help Desk to make a report or formal complaint. If you would like to make an anonymous report, you may use the EthicsPoint system. Additionally, you can direct any questions to Rabbi Andrew Goodman, Director of Student Support, at Andrew.Goodman@huc.edu.
To make a report or complaint, please contact Nicole Jones, Global Director of Human Resources, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to make an anonymous report, you may use the EthicsPoint system.
Title IX prohibits discrimination based on sex and gender in educational institutions, programs, and activities. To report violations of Title IX, contact us by email at email@example.com or by phone at 844-317-HELP (4357). Callers may choose to remain anonymous.
With Title IX reports, we will maintain privacy to the greatest extent possible, and information disclosed will be relayed only as necessary to investigate and/or seek a resolution and to notify the Title IX Coordinator, who is responsible for tracking patterns and spotting systemic issues.
