Share a Concern for Graduate Students

At The Grainger College of Engineering, we are committed to nurturing an inclusive and respectful environment where our differences are celebrated, perspectives heard and every individual feels a sense of belonging. 

The Graduate, Professional, and Online Programs Office Share a Concern process provides graduate students a safe and confidential place to report inappropriate or concerning behavior, navigate the help-seeking process at the University of Illinois and connect with relevant college and campus resources. We work collaboratively with college departments/units and university partners to provide consultation, coordinate support and foster a greater community of care.
