How to Report Behaviors of Concern

The Behavior of Concern report is an online reporting mechanism for all members of the CWU Community through Guardian Conduct.  You can log in with your CWU credentials OR reports can be submitted anonymously by clicking the "Report Behaviors of Concern" button below. 

We have divided up the different incident types to better direct the reports we recieve.  If you are unsure which incident type to choose, click "Behavioral/Student Conduct" and we will route it to the correct office for you. Our current incident types are detailed below:

Lifecycle of a Behavior of Concern Report

After a report is submitted, you can log into your Guardian Portal to edit the report you submitted, upload other documents, view the report or see what stage the case is in.   

Depending on the type of report received, staff will either work to connect individuals with appropriate resources and services on campus or will process the information through our Student Rights & Responsibilities process and will bring the student in to discuss the situation and any potential violations of university policies.
