It is important that all members of the university community work and learn in environments that are respectful and inclusive. Anyone with concerns or questions about possible harassment should report them immediately. There are many options available for addressing problem behaviors. It is against federal law and Virginia Tech policy to retaliate against anyone for taking steps to stop discrimination or discriminatory harassment.

There are a wide range of approaches to dealing with problems in an academic or work environment that may resolve issues without having to take formal steps of bringing a complaint.
