Incident Reporting

This is an internal tool used to report and track the various situations that are dealt with by ND faculty/staff/students.  These reports will be useful in identifying follow-up measures and to inform mediation and resolution. The data from this tool will be used to determine training and support needs for future Notre Dame education abroad opportunities.

This is not designed as an emergency response device for Clery Act, Title Nine or Notre Dame Security Police.  If you are in an emergency situation, contact Notre Dame International at 574-339-6154 (call or text).
