Relevant excerpt

Individuals may use the online report form to report hate/bias incidents. You have the option to fill in your contact information or submit the report anonymously. Reports submitted anonymously or with limited information may limit our ability to follow up on an incident.  Once a report is submitted online, a copy is emailed to a team for appropriate review and necessary action.

Too often, acts of hate and bias go unreported for a number of reasons ranging from a lack of trust to fear of reprisal. Some events, like racial epithets written on bathroom walls, are occasionally dismissed as too trivial to report. However, research suggests that these types of events tend to build into much bigger ones. Furthermore, they create a hostile, unsafe, and unwelcoming climate for the people they target and do damage to our community as a whole.

Hate/bias related events are those actions or behaviors committed that involve the intentional selection of a victim based on their membership in a group identified by  race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, veteran status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
