Reporting Options

RISD’s primary concern is for the health and safety of its students and other members of the RISD community.  RISD strongly urges the reporting of all incidents, no matter how minor, of perceived discrimination, harassment, and/or sexual misconduct. Individuals who believe they have experienced or observed conduct that is prohibited by RISD’s policies or who otherwise have concerns about such matters should contact Equity & Compliance.

Any individual may report an incident of discrimination, harassment, and/or sexual misconduct to Equity & Compliance by contacting one of our staff members listed or at the link below. Individuals have the right to file reports both on and off campus. For example, you can file a report with Equity & Compliance and also the Providence Police Department (401 272-3121). Reports can be made to Equity & Compliance in person, through mail, email, telephone, or electronic report submission, through the following means:
