Report an Incident

Report an Academic Misconduct (ACC) Violation
Oakland University faculty may report suspected academic misconduct by any student to the Dean of Students for review. A report is filed using this online reporting system. Academic violations include cheating, plagiarism, unauthorized collaboration, resubmission of original work or falsifying official records. General classroom behavior is considered a non-academic violation (see below).

If you have questions about whether a behavior is considered academic misconduct, please contact the Dean of Students office.

Report a Non-Academic Misconduct Violation
Any member of the university community may report an alleged violation of the Student Code of Conduct (SCC). Violations of the SCC include any behavior that fails to exhibit the standards of integrity, community, respect and responsibility (e.g., alcohol, drugs, hazing, infliction or threat of bodily harm, theft, vandalism, disorderly conduct, etc.).

If you have questions about whether a behavior is considered a violation of the SCC, please contact the Dean of Students office.

Report Relationship Violence, Interpersonal Violence or Sexual Misconduct
We encourage all members of the OU community to report allegations of relationship violence, interpersonal violence or sexual misconduct. If you are unsure about reporting at this time, please reach out to the OU Counseling Center as a confidential internal resource and/or other community resources that can help guide you.

If you have questions about whether a behavior is considered a violation, please contact the Dean of Students office. If you are a faculty or staff member, you are required to report relationship violence, stalking or sexual misconduct to the university.

Report Concerning, Worrisome or Threatening Behaviors
Students, faculty, staff, parents and others are strongly encouraged to report behaviors that they feel are concerning, worrisome or threatening (no matter how small or insignificant that may seem). Imminent threats should immediately be reported to the Oakland University Police Department (OUPD).

For information regarding the scope of concerning behavior, please visit our Faculty and Staff Resources page.
