Relevant excerpt

If you feel that you’ve been a victim of a hateful act, please submit a Bias and Hate Incident Form so that we are aware of such incidents and, when necessary, we can enforce appropriate consequences.

A bias incident is a non-criminal act that is motivated in whole, or in part, by a victim’s actual or perceived sex, race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity or disability. This type of incident may be directed toward and individual or group.

Bias and hate incidents contribute to creating an unsafe or unwelcoming environment.  Not all bias incidents are considered discrimination or harassment under the University of South Carolina’s Non-Discrimination Policy [pdf].
