Understand & Report Bias

John Carroll University is dedicated to building a campus community free from bias, discrimination, and hate.

Here at JCU, we understand our Jesuit mission as being fundamentally opposed to these things. We cannot at once be committed to “service for the common good” and also tolerate behaviors that are harmful or destructive to others.

We are working to Inform, Involve and Empower all members of our campus community to respond to these incidents where and when they occur, with the ultimate goal that we will be a university where ALL of our community members feel that:

  • they are safe,
  • they belong,
  • their voices are heard,
  • their life experience is respected,
  • their dignity and personhood are honored, and
  • they are an essential part of John Carroll’s mission, past, present and future.

When you report incidents of bias, you help us take a major step forward in becoming the community we aspire to be. No one should be mistreated because of their race, age, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, ethnic or national origin, disability, military or veteran status, or genetic information — and it’s our shared responsibility to stop discrimination and bias when we see it. We can work together to build a safer, healthier, stronger, more respectful and inclusive John Carroll community.

Those who feel they have been the target of bias as well as those who have witnessed or been told about an incident by a target of bias should submit this online report.
