The University is committed to maintaining an environment free from unlawful discrimination or harassment and your reports enable the University to assess the campus climate and promptly respond to incidents. Examples of reports made to Office of Diversity and Inclusion include those relating to:
- Accessibility barriers
- Bias Incidents
Bias incidents are actions committed against a person or group that are motivated in whole or in part, by bias against the person’s or group’s sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, race, religion, or disability or other protected class. Bias incidents may or may not be hate crimes. Hate crimes are criminal offenses motivated in whole or in part, by bias against the person’s protected class. All hate crimes are bias incidents, but not all bias incidents are hate crimes. Please use these guidelines if you witness or experience a bias incident so that the University may promptly and effectively respond.
We encourage you to report incidents of bias involving a member of the University of Pittsburgh community.
Report forms will be reviewed during business hours of 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday. Reports received after business hours will generally be reviewed during the next business day. In the event of a university holiday, reports will be reviewed on the first business day back.
