Student and Campus Safety

The safety of our students, faculty, staff and campus guests is the highest priority of Boise State University.

Campus leaders are committed to doing everything possible to prevent sexual misconduct and other crimes, as well as harassment, incidents of hate and bias, and other misdeeds that go against the university’s mission and our Shared Values. When necessary, the university will act quickly to respond to reported incidents and mitigate allegations — and to support our students, faculty, staff and others in as many ways as possible.

Boise State has a long and expansive set of integrated resources, support services, security efforts, educational opportunities and response teams in place to prevent sexual assault and harassment, other crimes, and incidents of hate and bias — is in a continual process of reviewing, updating and improving these efforts. Nearly all of these offices, services and supports are open to the entire campus community — including students, faculty and staff. 

Report a Crime

In any emergency, call 9-1-1.

If you experience, witness, or suspect criminal activity on campus you can call 9-1-1 or the Department of Public Safety at (208) 426-6911.

If you have information about a crime that has occurred on campus but wish to report the information anonymously, call Crime Stoppers at (208) 343-2677 or fill out Boise State’s “Silent Witness” form. Your information will be taken with the strictest confidence by specially trained personnel. Tipsters are issued code numbers to protect their anonymity and are never asked to provide their name or personal information.

Sexual Misconduct and Title IX

If you feel you or someone you know has been discriminated against on the basis of sex, Boise State University is here to help.

Reports of sexual harassment and assault, relationship violence, and stalking are taken seriously by Boise State. To file a formal complaint, fill out the form on this web page.

To find out more about Title IX, contact Alicia Estey, Interim Coordinator of Title IX/ADA/504 Compliance, at (208) 426-1258 or ReportDiscrimination@boisestate.edu.

Retaliation for filing a complaint is prohibited under Title IX and the university will take instances of retaliation seriously and promptly respond to reports.

  • Gender Equity Center: Serves the entire campus community of faculty, staff and students and can provide confidential support and advocacy. Student Union, 2nd floor, (208) 426-4259, genderequity@boisestate.edu.
