Submit a Care Report

Submitting a care report is a way for Luther community members to alert the Office of Student Engagement when students are experiencing personal difficulty so that Student Engagement staff may intervene appropriately. We encourage you to report a student as soon as a concern arises. We have found that early interventions are critical to personal and academic success for students.

Report Bias Incident

At Luther, acts of bias go against our mission and our community values. We seek to provide you a timely response and support. Bias refers to language and/or behaviors against persons because of, but not limited to, others’ actual or perceived: age, color, creed, disability, gender, gender identity/expression, genetic information, national origin, race/ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, political affiliation, or veteran status.

If you or someone you know may have experienced a bias incident, hate act, hate crime, harassment, or discrimination on campus or in the Decorah community, please report a bias incident.

View the Student Handbook for more information about Bias Incidents.

Report Sexual Misconduct

If you or someone you know may have experienced sexual misconduct on campus or in the Decorah community, please complete the Sexual Misconduct Support Form.

Luther College is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and healthy environment where all members of the community—students, faculty, staff, and visitors—are treated with respect and dignity.

Therefore, the college will not tolerate sexual misconduct in any form. Sexual misconduct is not only an act against an individual; it is also an act that affects the entire college community. Sexual misconduct, fondling, rape, relationship violence, and stalking are inconsistent with our educational mission, and students found responsible for such acts are subject to disciplinary measures up to and including expulsion. Supportive measures are available to impacted individuals even without a formal process, for more information please visit the Get Help Now webpage.
