Climate Incident Dashboard

This Dashboard reflects the Campus Climate and Bias incidents that have been reported to the Office of Equity and Inclusion this academic year. The incidents were reported through OEI's Climate Incident Report, and reflect direct experiences related to bias or mistreatment in the workplace, the classroom, or the campus in general. Reported incidents are processed via OEI's Reporting Protocol. Please note that this dashboard replaces the previous OEI Bias Incident Report and Tracker.

Note that the Distinct Count of Reports reflects the total number of reports received. Bias Types Reported and Bias Method reflects the bias types across all reports; ie., some incidents and reports  involve multiple types of bias. 

Reported Climate Incidents: Academic Year 2023-2024 


What is a Bias Related Incident? 

A bias incident is conduct—speech or action—reflecting bias or prejudice. It differs from a hate crime in that no criminal activity is involved. While hate crimes are dealt with in the court system, bias incidents are handled through university grievance procedures. Learn more about the difference between bias incidents and hate crimes.
