Harvard's Office of Gender Equity (OGE)

- Anonymous Disclosure form: Use this form to let OGE know of any event or situation you are concerned about (includes if you're not sure if it crosses a line but want to raise the issue to someone). The form is completely anonymous and is not the same as filing a formal complaint with the Title IX coordinators. 

- Sexual Harassment/Assault Resources and Education (SHARE) Counselors: These are confidential and privileged counselors who you can talk to both via a scheduled appointment or through the 24-hour crisis hotline (617) 495-9100. 

Title IX Resource Coordinators: Talking to the Resource Coordinators does not mean you are/will be filing a formal Title IX complaint. That process could happen if you want it to, but you can talk to the coordinators about a situation or event, and they can inform you of resources and options you have to address a particular situation. 

For FAS-GSAS students, contact either:

Seth Avakian (avakian@fas.harvard.edu, (617) 495-9583)
