What is a Hate/Bias Incident?

A hate/bias incident is an act of conduct, speech or expression to which a bias motive is evident as a contributing factor (regardless of whether the act is criminal). A hate crime is an incident that has risen to the level of a crime. All hate crimes are bias incidents but not all bias incidents are hate crimes.


Hate/bias incidents reported through this form are sent to both the UNM Police Department (crime assessment) and the Office of Equal Opportunity (civil rights violation assessment). This report allows the University of New Mexico to monitor and effectively respond to activity that negatively impacts the campus climate and the well-being of our community members.
