Bias or Discrimination

This form is for reporting bias incidents, discrimination, or harassment involving a School of Brokering affiliate (student, staff, or faculty member).

Bias incidents are speech or expressive conduct directed toward an individual or group based on or motivated by their actual or perceived protected class status, such as race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, ancestry, age, or disability. Bias incidents may include actions motivated by bias that are protected by the First Amendment and do not meet the necessary elements required to prove a crime or a violation of the School of Brokering policy.

If this incident involves bias, discrimination, or harassment regarding gender, gender identity, and/or expression of sexual orientation, it is covered under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Please refer to the School of Brokering Title IX webpage at 

Depending on the nature and severity of the behavior, the associated bias, and the impact, bias incidents will be addressed through appropriate interventions, such as education, restorative practices, community dialogue, formal processes through institutional offices (e.g., review, investigation, resolution), and/or referral to local law enforcement. Although not every incident may violate the school's policy or law, all reported incidents will be reviewed for an appropriate response.

 

The First Amendment allows, protects, and promotes the ability to discuss controversial ideas, differing views, and sometimes offensive and hurtful words. Such speech or expression will not be stifled or disciplined but may be used as an opportunity to grow as a community through intentional thought in discourse.
