Incidents of Bias/Hate
The University of Wisconsin-Madison values a diverse community where all members are able to participate fully in the Wisconsin Experience. Incidents of Bias/Hate affecting a person or group create a hostile climate and negatively impact the quality of the Wisconsin Experience for community members. UW Madison takes such incidents seriously and will investigate and respond to reported or observed incidents of bias/hate.
Submitting a Bias Report Form is a safe2 mechanism for students to report bias/hate incidents. When a report is submitted, The Dean of Students Office will begin an investigation into the reported incident and notify a University response team. The response team is responsible for reviewing the report and developing and initiating any appropriate response.
