Bias Reporting & Prevention

The Bias Reporting Tool provides a place for students, faculty and staff to report incidents of bias that occur within the campus community. The goals of the Bias Reporting and Response Process include: 1) Support members of the UIC community who have been impacted by bias incidents. 2) Center the concerns and hopes of those who report bias incidents in the response process. Including, if at all possible, letting them play a role in how the bias incident is addressed. 3) Collect data and review trends of bias incidents in order to better understand the complex needs and challenges facing the campus, and guide recommendations to university leadership who can then create appropriate policies, education and programs.
