Diversity Resources for Faculty and Staff
Interrupting Bias Related Behavior
As members of a community, each of us holds the responsibility to confront bias related incidents whether they occur in our classrooms, offices, residence halls, or throughout our campus. Interrupting an incident as it is happening can be difficult. Faculty and staff should contact Public Safety immediately should they witness a bias related incident.
