Division of Inclusion and Equity

Report Bias Incidents

Anytime you or anyone in the Grand Valley State University community feels belittled, disrespected, threatened, or unsafe because of who you are, the entire university community is diminished. That's why it's important to report all bias incidents--even those intended as jokes.

While Grand Valley safeguards individuals' constitutional rights and protected speech, the university is also committed to inclusion and equity. Grand Valley exercises the right to engage in educational dialogue and seeks constructive responses to address bias incidents.

How do I recognize a bias incident?

Bias incidents take many forms -- words, signs, symbols, threats or actions -- electronic or real time. They include intimidation, vandalism, destruction of property, harassment, and expressions of hate or hostility; they have an adverse impact on a learning environment that is inclusive of all.
