While this page is designed to provide guidance and clarification during the incident report process, it’s most important that you report your concerns through any of the three forms named below. The incidents reported through these forms are reviewed by the Threat Assessment & Behavioral Intervention (TABI) Team and are responded to as appropriate.
- Faculty should raise academic success flags (e.g. attendance or academic performance concerns, tutoring or disability referrals, etc.) through Starfish: The Retention Software beginning fall 2019. Starfish is located in the Bruin Portal.
- A link to the Academic Integrity Incident Report Form is available to faculty only and can be found in the Bruin Portal.

Violations of the Student Code of Conduct are considered non-academic violations. Violations of the Student Code are behaviors that include, but are not limited to, substance use or possession, disruptive activity, hazing, harassment, violence or other violations of the Student Code of Conduct policies, regulations or rules. To report an incident involving a Student Code violation, use the Student Code of Conduct Incident Report Form.
Title IX violations include, but are not limited to, interpersonal violence, dating violence, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct or stalking behaviors. The College has designated individuals that are responsible for addressing potential Title IX violations and concerns. For more information about the policy and procedure, please refer to the Title IX Policy. To report an incident that may fall under this policy, use the Sex/Gender-Based Harassment, Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct (Title IX) Incident Report Form.

Faculty, staff, students and community members are encouraged to use the online referral form to report situations where they perceive a student may be in distress. For more information on recognizing when a student may be in distress and what you can do to help, refer to the Recognizing a Bruin in Distress resource. To report a concern, use the Bruins Care Concern Form.
