Incidents of Bias

What is a bias incident?

A bias incident is conduct that discriminates, stereotypes, excludes, harasses, embarrasses, demeans, or harms an individual or group based on their identity such as race, color, national origin, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, or religion, or perceived identity. Even when an incident of bias does not violate USU’s non-discrimination policy, it can still have a negative effect on the person who has experienced it and on our community as a whole.

To seek support for an incident of bias that you or another have experienced, please contact:
