McGill University Reporting Webform for Incidents of Doxxing, Intimidation, or Discrimination


Members of McGill community may report incidents of intimidation or discrimination, including doxxing, in a safe and confidential manner.  

To report here, the incidents in question must have occurred within the “McGill University Context” and where both the affected party and the respondent are members of the McGill Community.  

Complaints are assessed to determine if they fall within the “McGill University Context” based on McGill University policies (e.g., Policy on Harassment & Discrimination, Policy against Sexual Violence, Code of Student Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures) considering factors such as location, involvement in University-sponsored activities, or online conduct affecting campus safety.


For the purposes of this process, “McGill University Context” is defined as per Section 1.12 of the Policy on Harassment & Discrimination as “an occurrence: 

  1. on University premises;  
  2. within the context of a University-sponsored program or event or activity whether on campus or off-campus (e.g., University-sponsored competitions or field trips/studies); or 
  3. off-campus, including online or in social media, where the conduct has consequences that may be reasonably seen to adversely affect: 
    1. the safety of students, faculty or staff while on campus or while participating in a University-sponsored program, event or activity; or,  
    2. the right of a Member of the University Community to use and enjoy the University’s learning or working environment”.  

“Member of the McGill University Community” is defined in Section 1.6 of the Policy on Harassment & Discrimination as: 

  1. anyone holding office under the University Charter and Statutes; 
  2. an appointee or employee of the University;  
  3. a student as defined in Section 1 of the Code of Student Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures

Reporting Process

Initial Review: Once an incident has been reported through this webform there will be an initial review by designated offices, specifically the Deputy Provost of Student Life and Learning (DP SLL) and Associate Provost, Equity and Academic Policies (AP EAP). 

Referral to relevant authorities: Depending on the nature of the incident, the DP SLL or the AP EAP, or their delegate, may follow up with the reporter to advise them as to possible next steps. Such steps could include referral to the Office for Mediation & Reporting or the Office of the Dean of Students for the purposes of filing a formal complaint through a university policy such as the Policy on Harassment & Discrimination, Policy against Sexual Violence, or Code of Student Conduct & Disciplinary Procedures.

Please write to campusclimate [at] if you need any additional assistance regarding the reporting process.


McGill University is dedicated to protecting the confidentiality of all reports submitted through this webform. The information received through his channel will only be accessible to a limited number of authorized individuals within the offices of the offices of the DP SLL and AP EAP, each of whom is bound to maintain confidentiality. Barring a situation of emergency where there is a clear and imminent risk to the person who submits the form or a third party, the information shared will not be forwarded to any University official without consent.
