Nevertheless, Tulane encourages all faculty, staff, and students to report any potential violations of Tulane’s EO policy. To assist those who may not feel comfortable identifying themselves, but have valid good-faith concerns, we allow for anonymous reporting. Please know that anonymous reports are taken as seriously as any other type of report, but Tulane’s ability to respond may be limited.
