Reporting an Incident
Students, faculty, staff and any other community members who wish to file a complaint or incident report may do so by visiting the Department of Public Safety, located at 236 West 27th Street on the first floor. Please be as specific as possible with regards to dates, times, students involved (include contact information and FIT ID number, if possible) and statements that were spoken directly to you (please use quotations) vs. those which you overheard. All complaints need to be submitted in writing. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact the Dean of Students Office at (212) 217-3800 or [email protected].
The Dean of Students Office may reach out to you for clarification regarding your report. Additionally, the Office will update you on the handling of the situation while maintaining privacy confidentiality of all parties involved. Information may also only be shared with necessary parties on a need-to-know basis. If you do not hear from the Office, do not assume that the incident is not being investigated. Please note that depending on the complexity of the report or when the report was made, the follow-up from the Office may take anywhere from a few days to a longer period of time. Each incident is different. The Office does its best to protect the privacy of the reporting party, however confidentiality cannot be guaranteed. Incident reports cannot be assumed to be anonymous. As always in cases of emergencies immediately contact the Department of Public Safety at (212) 217-7777.
