Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities

Fairness | Honesty | Respect | Responsibility | Trust

Part of our work in the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities is to ensure students, faculty and staff have access to support resources they need to help individuals who may be facing personal challenges in their lives.

If you are concerned about the behavior of a student, faculty or staff member, you are encouraged to submit the concern through the Report Concerning Behavior link. This report is initially reviewed by UNCG Police to determine appropriate next steps. You may choose to report your concern to an appropriate University representative: Department head, Chair or Dean (faculty concerns); the Dean of Students Office (student concerns); or Human Resources (staff concerns).

For assistance or consultation while completing this referral, please contact the Dean of Students Office (336-334-5514) or UNCG Police (336-334-4444). If this is an emergency that requires immediate attention, please contact UNCG Police at 336-334-4444 or dial 911.
