Report An Incident

Reporting Instructions

This page houses many of our reporting forms for the University of the Incarnate Word. Each of the links below will direct you to a specific form and each form will have directions about the use, intended purpose, and/or limitations associated with its use.

All forms should be filled out with complete, accurate, and specific information. Please know that completing this report with incomplete or inaccurate information may impair, deter, or delay the University's ability to take the appropriate action. Additionally, please know that any students accused of misconduct in a report have the right to review the report.

If you have questions or concerns, or are unsure of how to best report your concern, please contact the Office of Student Advocacy and Accountability at (210) 805-5864 and we will be happy to provide additional guidance.

We thank you for promoting the health and safety for all members of the UIW Community!
