UMass community members have the right not to be discriminated against by any university agent or organization for any reason, including age, creed, disability, ethnic or national origin, gender, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, political or social affiliation, race, religion, or sexual orientation. All members of the UMass Amherst community are asked to actively foster an appreciation for diversity by not tolerating bias-related acts.
While we hope you may never have to use them, UMass has several methods through which you can report an incident of bias or receive support. We have compiled your reporting options here. If you are not sure which to use, just choose the method or form that you are most comfortable with.
If you are not looking to report a specific incident and instead are looking for support systems or someone to talk to, please visit the UMatter@UMass website. They have compiled a comprehensive list of organizations and resources on campus to help you through any difficult situation.
