Student Feedback and Equity Concerns

Please use the Student Academic Complaint Process for issues related to administrative processes, curriculum, academic and/or classroom activities. We also value your feedback and suggestions including specific equity concerns and bias-related issues. You can use this form to submit feedback and suggestions, both positive and negative, and share equity related issues. This form will allow you to specifically describe incidents in which racial or other equity-related bias, or microaggressions, occurred. You may submit this form anonymously. However, for us to follow up and provide the necessary support, we encourage you to include your contact information. For further information, please visit the Student Feedback and Equity Concerns FAQ.

Please note that this form does not take the place of any University process or policy. If you would like to report an incident under the University’s policy on Prohibited Discrimination, Harassment, and Related Misconduct including Sexual and Gender Based Harassment, Sexual Violence, Interpersonal Violence, and Stalking, please visit Safe At UNC or the Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office (EOC) for additional information, including resources, contact, and reporting options. All information is fully held privately possible in accordance with federal and state law.

UNC strives to honor the wishes of individuals submitting information but may need to pursue additional actions to protect the health and welfare of impacted persons and the broader University community. Depending on the nature of the concern, the UNC EOC Office could be contacted to provide further assessment. Should this occur, you will be notified of these next steps. The bias-related questions in this form were adapted from the NC State Bias Reporting Tool. These questions are included with the goal of advancing Gillings’ commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion among our faculty, staff and students, and stem from the belief that all people should be treated with civility, dignity, and respect.
