Make a Report

Holy Cross encourages all members of our community to report concerning or threatening behavior, potential misconduct, and other issues listed below.

Using the correct form will help route your report to the proper group, but any report received will be considered and sent to the correct location.

If you’re not sure which form to use, please use our EthicsPoint reporting system and it will be routed to the correct group.

Reporting Options

Emergencies and Immediate Response

All emergencies, including crimes in progress and acts of violence, should be reported immediately to 911 or to the Department of Public Safety by calling the emergency number 2222 from an on-campus phone or 508-793-2222 from a cell phone.

Report Threatening Behavior 

The Threat Assessment Group (TAG) endeavors to identify potential risks of harm to Holy Cross community members as early as possible and to work constructively and collaboratively with all involved before problems escalate.

Reports may be anonymous, but IP addresses are automatically recorded and may be used if there is concern of imminent harm. 

Report Sexual Misconduct

Use this form to report an incident of sexual misconduct, relationship violence, stalking, retaliation, or other issue of sexual misconduct. Reports will be routed to the Office of Title IX & Equal Opportunity. Reports may be anonymous, but IP addresses are recorded and may be obtained under certain circumstances.

Report Bias, Discrimination or Harassment

Use this form to report an incident of bias, discrimination or harassment motivated by an individual’s actual or perceived race, religion, color, national origin, age, marital or parental status (including pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions), veteran status, sex, disability, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other legally protected status.

Reports will be routed to the Office of Title IX & Equal Opportunity. Reports may be anonymous, but IP addresses are recorded and may be obtained under certain circumstances.

Report a Student of Concern

Use this form to report concerns about students who may be in distress or whose behavior is concerning or disruptive to others in the community. 

The College will evaluate the level of support required, which may include direct outreach and/or referral to the Student CARE Team

Reports may be anonymous, but IP addresses are recorded and may be obtained under certain circumstances. 

Make an Anonymous Report (EthicsPoint)

EthicsPoint is a third-party reporting tool for Holy Cross community members to anonymously report misconduct within the Holy Cross community. 

Your report is sent to a third-party company, EthicsPoint, which is owned and managed by NAVEX Global. EthicsPointwill relay the information to the appropriate College official (generally the Chief Compliance Officer or Title IX Coordinator) who will determine the appropriate response, based upon the information contained in your report and existing protocols.

Because these reports go to a third party, the College cannot obtain IP information and reports to EthicsPoint may be fully anonymous. You may also choose to identify yourself.

Report Student Misconduct

Use this form to report student behavior (excluding Title IX / Equal Opportunity and Academic Misconduct) that may constitute a violation of the College's Community Standards Process and Procedures.

COVID-19 Noncompliance 

Use this form to report concerning behaviors related to COVID-19 policy compliance.

Academic Integrity

Please contact the appropriate Class Dean to report a known or suspected incident of academic dishonesty.
