Bias-Related Incidents and Hate Crimes Reporting

Relevant excerpt

In addition to the university’s non-discrimination policies, members of our community should also be free from acts of hate crimes and bias incidents based on race, color, national origin, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, religion, height, weight, marital status and veteran status.

Bias-related incidents are non-criminal activities based on race, color, national origin, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, religion, height, weight, marital status and veteran status. Some examples of possible bias-related incidents include writing a racial epithet in erasable marker on someone’s dry-erase board, making fun of another person because of the person’s language or accent, or making insulting comments about someone’s traditional manner of dress or geographic origin.

The university encourages students, faculty and staff to report hate crimes and bias-related incidents.
