Responding to Bias Activity Protocol
The University is committed to being a diverse and inclusive community, strengthened intellectually and socially by the range of knowledge, opinions, beliefs, political perspectives, identities, and backgrounds of its members. Bias based conduct (“Bias Activity”) targeting protected characteristics or beliefs creates barriers to inclusion, access, and trust, and affects not only the targeted individual or group, but often adversely affects an entire group or community.
Given the potential negative and/or hurtful impact that such conduct has on members of the University community and to reinforce the climate necessary to achieve and maintain a diverse and inclusive community, the University has developed the following protocol.
