Make a report

If you are an SFU student or employee, you can submit a report about bullying and harassment that you have experienced by another SFU student or employee or that has taken place on SFU property. There are two options for submitting your report:

  • Meet with a case manager who can answer your questions about the reporting process and assist you with submitting the report.
  • Submit your report directly through the online reporting form. 

If you are a unionized employee, you are encouraged to contact your union representative before submitting a report.
