    Although we hope all members of our community will have a positive experience in our department, we also want to highlight the many ways that you can report an issue so we can take action to address any racist or otherwise problematic behavior. To get the most resources in responding to your concern, please use the College of Engineering Bias Reporting Tool.

College of Engineering Office of Inclusive Excellence Reporting Tool

Bias Reporting

Whether you are a student or employee, we encourage you to report these incidents using the College’s Incident Reporting tool. This tool not only provides the option for you to receive tailored support from trained advocates, but it allows the College to better understand where targeted interventions are needed to improve our community as a whole. Reports are handled by a small group of trained individuals within the Dean’s Office at the College of Engineering who will work towards a resolution. Although we are required to request your name as part of the reporting process, we are committed to protecting your identity and you can choose to remain anonymous after the initial report filing. At the University of Washington, students and employees are protected from discrimination, harassment and retaliation.
