Who can submit a report of Non-Academic Misconduct?
If you are a student, staff, or faculty at Queen’s University, you may submit a report of Non-Academic Misconduct using the information below. Only those reports assessed as within the scope of the Code are referred to a NAM Unit. If your report is referred, you may receive a request to meet with a Case Manager regarding your report.
While anonymous complaints may be received, Queen's will have a limited ability to respond to such complaints.
