Puget Sound's annual discriminatory harassment report is now available online. To view it visit  pugetsound.edu/hroreports. This year harassment report officers (HROs) have again broadened the reporting practice by sharing all concerns and incidents—not just those which resulted in official actions—reported to HROs, the chief diversity/Title IX officer, and the Bias Hate Educational Response Team (BHERT). This methodology increases the documented incidents for this report, but provides the community with a more comprehensive picture of the discriminatory incidents submitted to the university.
