How CSU Responds to Incidents of Bias
According to the FBI, hate crimes have been on the rise on college campuses across the country since 2015. The U.S. Department of Education reported a 25% increase in hate crimes on college campuses between 2015 to 2016. CSU has seen incidents of hate and bias on its campus. CSU’s Bias Assessment Team has been hard at work tracking incidents of hate and bias and reaching out to support those impacted by hate and bias. This session will cover CSU’s Bias Assessment Team, its mission, and what happens when a report of an incident of bias is received. Participants in this session will learn the definition of a bias incident, the difference between an incident of bias and a hate crime, and how the First Amendment applies to incidents of hate and bias.
