When you file a report about an incident of bias, you are actually doing several things at once:

  • Helping us identify where and when bias is occurring on campus;
  • Giving us the information we need to intervene in difficult or dangerous situations;
  • Requesting immediate follow-up for situations where a quick response is needed, such as the removal of graffiti;
  • Bringing the incident to the attention of senior administrators, making it visible and immediate;
  • Ensuring that the incident is not forgotten or “covered up,” recording it in a formal database that records the frequency of incidents of bias over time and across campus;
  • Making it possible for us to structure campus programming, awareness campaigns, and other projects to target the most important issues being faced by our community members;
  • Standing in solidarity with all those who face bias;
  • Speaking up for inclusion, dignity and respect in our campus climate.

Clicking the “Report Bias” button on the right will enable you to describe and report an incident of bias.
