Academic Impressions Webcast: Leading Through Bias Incidents on Campus

Be prepared to successfully lead your campus through bias incidents.

In today’s socio-political landscape, bias-fueled incidents are becoming more and more widespread on campuses. Several incidents involving significant bias have even made national headlines (see CSU, UNH and Yale), so it is imperative that institutions train their staff on how to respond to and manage these events appropriately with minimal damage.

Our instructor, who experienced a high-profile bias incident at her institution recently, will share preparation strategies to competently handle such experiences while preserving the campus community and the institution’s reputation.

What is a bias incident?

A bias incident or hate incident is an act of hostility motivated by racism, sexism, religious intolerance, or other prejudices that is intended to target and marginalize people based on their social, political, racial, gender, or religious identities. Bias incidents cause harm, confusion, and frustration within the community, and restoring campus trust takes time and effort.
