Bias Education

STOP Bias and Hate delivers bias education in a variety of ways:

  • Student workshops —interactive educational presentations hosted by and for students.
  • Individualized interventions —sometimes, as a result of a bias-related incident report students may either be required to receive or choose to receive 1:1 bias education.
  • Programs and Events —STOP Bias hosts and sponsors programming and events in collaboration with campus partners to educate about bias, cultural competency, and promote inclusion on campus.
  • Outreach —STOP Bias distributes a number of promotional materials at various events and spaces throughout the community to raise awareness around conscious and unconscious bias.

Sign-up for an upcoming training through the Wellness Leadership Institute.

Can Bias be Eliminated?

Bias can be greatly reduced, if not eliminated, with your help. When you recognize an act of bias, first and foremost, your safety is the priority. If a situation arises where you feel comfortable safely interjecting or intervening, here are some strategies to address bias:

  • Be Direct: Tell the person their behavior or language is concerning or hurtful
  • Ask: Ask the person why they used that language or behavior
  • Share: Describe how that language/behavior makes you feel
  • Distract: Divert attention away from the problematic language to de-escalate a situation
  • Group Support: Recruit other people or friends to intervene together
  • Show Support: Let the impacted person know you are there for them
  • Bring in Support: If things become too serious, contact emergency personnel like the Barnes Center at The Arch or Department of Public Safety
