Reporting Inappropriate Profile Pictures

This page has been developed in collaboration with the Office of Compliance, Ethics, and Equal Opportunity (CEEO) to provide guidance on how/when to report an inappropriate profile picture in UNM Canvas.

Before reporting a profile picture, here are some things to consider:

Photos that fall under the following categories should be reported:
  • Self-harm or suicide
  • Pornographic or obscene
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Bullying
  • Discrimination based on a protected status. Protected statuses at UNM include: age (40+), ancestry, national origin, color, race, gender/sex, gender identity, genetic information, medical condition, disability, pregnancy, religion, sexual orientation, spousal affiliation, and veteran status.
  • Violence or threats of violence to a person or property of others
Photos that are offensive may not violate University policies. Please consider this before filing a report.

If you would like to report an inappropriate profile picture

Complaints can be filed with the UNM Office of Compliance, Ethics & Equal Opportunity (CEEO). The button below links to the reporting form. Complaints may be made anonymously; however, it is important to provide as much detail as possible in your report (including screenshots or other visual evidence) so that the University can take appropriate action in accordance with University policies.

What happens once a report is made

Once a report is made, you may receive follow-up from the appropriate University office to gather more information or ask additional questions. The University reviews each report received and makes a determination about which office is best suited to address the report. Due to the confidential and/or private nature that the University may take to address alleged misconduct, it’s possible that you will not be provided information as to what action the University took following the report.


Please make sure you have read the above before submitting a report
