The Commission on Diversity and Inclusion

Reporting Incidents of Bias

The Commission on Diversity and Inclusion (CODI) has launched an online form for reporting incidents of bias; it can also be found on the website. CODI is tracking bias incidents so that University can better address issues of culture, climate and inclusion. Examples of incidents of bias include, but are not limited to, any activity that intimidates, demeans, mocks, degrades, marginalizes, or threatens individuals or groups based on that person/group’s actual or perceived: 

  • Ability
  • Age
  • Ancestry
  • Citizenship 
  • Creed
  • Gender Expression
  • Immigration Status
  • Parenting/pregnancy status
  • Race / Ethnicity
  • Religious Practice 
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Veteran Status
This incident bias reporting form doesn't replace reporting a situation or event to the University Police Department, Counseling Center, Equal Opportunity Office, Ethics Hotline, Victim Advocacy or other University offices.
