How To File A Complaint - USF DIEO Complaint Process & Forms

Students, staff, and faculty are strongly encouraged to report allegations of discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation covered under the University’s Diversity, Inclusion and Equal Opportunity Policy (“Policy”) #0-007. Delaying the immediate reporting of an allegation often hinder a proper investigation and can also unnecessarily subject the Complainant to continued discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation.
