Report Bias

Use the STOP Bias and Hate online reporting tool to notify the University if you witness or experience a bias-related or hate incident. The reporting tool allows you to report anonymously or share your contact information for follow-up.

Importance of Reporting

Reporting an act of bias helps us understand the types of incidents occurring, biases that exist, and potential trends on our campus. By reporting, we can also respond accordingly to provide support, intervention, or education.

Reporting Process

STOP Bias and Hate reporting is driven by the impacted party and focuses primarily on educational and support resources. Once a report is made to the University, you’ll receive an automatic acknowledgment of your submission, followed by contact from the University, if requested, within three (3)-five (5) business days. You will be contacted by Community Standards or another member of the Bias Response Team who will work with you to gather more information about the incident and identify your options and the next steps, which can include support, the conduct process, or any other appropriate intervention.

Additional University departments, such as the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and, Title IX, the Barnes Center at The Arch will be notified, as appropriate to provide support. Support service referrals are not mandatory.

Reports to STOP Bias and Hate are not included in the Department of Public Safety’s bias incident report unless the reporter chooses to refer the incident to the Department of Public Safety or the nature of the incident requires DPS involvement. To report an incident directly to the Department of Public Safety, please refer to the options on the report a crime page.
