Since spring 2018, the Office of Equal Opportunity & Compliance (EOC) has been the University’s central office for handling complaints of bias, discrimination, discrimination-related harassment, and sexual harassment. All such complaints, whether they are against St. John’s students or employees, are processed through EOC to determine whether or not a violation of the University’s Policy against Bias, Discrimination, and Harassment (Policy No. 704) has occurred.
The bias log is a record of the complaints EOC has received. EOC recognizes the uniqueness of every individual’s experience. The redaction of names and titles as well as the brevity of the complaint descriptions is not meant in any way to minimize anyone’s humanity or experience. These details have been removed to protect the privacy of the individuals involved.
Anyone can make a complaint of bias, discrimination, discrimination-related harassment or sexual harassment by filling out the online bias reporting form available at www.stjohns.edu/reportbias or by contacting the EOC director, Keaton Wong, at (718) 990-2660 or [email protected].
More information about the bias reporting process is available on our website.
