- Disclosing is sharing information with UBC or a member of the UBC Community about an incident or incidents of harassment. An individual may choose to Disclose harassment without filing a Report.
- Reporting is providing a statement of allegations to the Office of Investigations or police about an incident or incidents of harassment.
Within Botany, disclosing to an Botany manager or advisor (e.g. Botany HR, Dept Head, Grad Program Advisor) may lead to internal documentation, which would be kept on file within the department. This is different from filing a formal report to the Investigations Office or police. However, if a disclosure to an Botany manager or advisor involves information about criminal activity, they are obliged to involve the police.
