bias motivated incidents

August 28, 2013

A “bias-motivated incident” is an act, such as disseminating racist flyers or defacing a student organization flyer, which does not violate the State Penal Code but originates in hatred for someone’s actual or perceived race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, disability, gender, or sexual orientation.

The University will not tolerate hate crimes or bias motivated incidents and will respond to them with appropriate sanctions which may include expulsion, suspension, or exclusion from the campus.
