Bias Incident Report
A Bias Incident is any activity against a person or property that is motivated by the offender's bias against race, color, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, age or religion. Members of the IWU community who believe they have witnessed or been subjected to a Bias Incident should report that incident. Reports may be completed online by using this form or by contacting the offices listed below. You may report the incident anonymously or with your name. Your name will only be shared if you are comfortable having it shared. While we will make every effort to respect your confidentiality, we understand that we are a small community and cannot guarantee complete anonymity in every situation.
Incidents that are a violation of University policy will be automatically reported to the appropriate office as follows:
- Reports of bias committed by students will go through the Dean of Students Office;
- Reports of bias committed by faculty will go through the Office of the Provost; and
- Reports of bias committed by staff will go through the Human Resources Office.
