Flowchart illustrating the reporting options available within the USC Policy on Prohibited Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation

Any individual may make a report of Prohibited Conduct under this Policy regardless of affiliation with the University and regardless of whether or not the person reporting is the person alleged to be the individual impacted by the conduct. Reports can be made in person, by mail, by telephone, or by electronic mail, or by any other means that results in the VP of EEO-TIX or EEO-TIX Office receiving the verbal or written report. A report may be made at any time (including during non-business hours) by using the telephone number, email address, or office mailing address, of the VP of EEO-TIX, listed below:

Catherine Spear
Vice President for Equity, Equal Opportunity and Title IX
USC Credit Union Building
3720 South Flower Street, 2nd Floor
Los Angeles, CA 90089-0704
(213) 740-5086 (for all inquiries, reports, or complaints regarding this Policy or other forms of Prohibited Conduct) to reach the VP of EEO-TIX

In addition, the University encourages anyone who experiences or witnesses an incident of Prohibited Conduct that may also violate criminal law to immediately report the incident to the Department of Public Safety or external law enforcement using the following contact information:

Department of Public Safety
UPC: (213) 740-6000 (24 hour, non-emergency number)
HSC: (323) 442-1200 (24 hour, non-emergency number)

Los Angeles Police Department
911 (for emergencies)
1-877-ASK-LAPD (24-hour, non-emergency number)

A Reporting Party may choose to make a report to the University to pursue resolution under this Resolution Process and may also choose to make a report to external law enforcement. A Reporting Party may make a report to the University, to law enforcement, to neither, or to both. As set forth in the Policy, a Reporting Party has the right to report, or decline to report, potential criminal conduct to law enforcement. Upon request, the University will assist a Reporting Party in contacting law enforcement at any time, regardless of whether the Reporting Party wishes to pursue a Formal Complaint under this Resolution Process. Under limited circumstances posing a threat to the health or safety of any University community member, or as required by the University’s Memorandum of Understanding with the Los Angeles Police Department, the University will independently notify law enforcement. The University’s Resolution Process and law enforcement investigations may be pursued simultaneously, but will operate independently of one another.
