What is a hate/bias incident?
Any non-criminal act motivated, in whole or in part, by the victim’s actual or perceived race, religion, ethnic background, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or disability.
Why does UW-L monitor hate incidents?
UW-L views hate incidents and all manifestations of prejudice or intolerance as antithetical to our mission as a university and a community, and as a threat to each individual’s right to a safe learning and working environment. Therefore, all such incidents have to be addressed appropriately, which depends on the nature of the incident, the people involved, the location of the incident.
