How to Report

CalArts recognizes that deciding whether or not to make a report and choosing how to proceed can be a difficult decision. The Institute encourages any individual who has questions or concerns to seek the support of campus and community resources. These resources can provide guidance in making decisions, information about available resources and procedural options, and assistance to either party in the event that a report and/or resolution under this policy is pursued.

Individuals are encouraged to use all available resources, regardless of when or where the incident occurred.


Confidential Reporting

CalArts encourages all community members to make a prompt report of any alleged incident of discrimination, harassment, and/or sexual misconduct. For individuals who are not prepared to make a report but are still seeking information and support, there are several statutorily protected confidential resources available, as designated below. You may speak with one of these members or fill out our anonymous report online.
