Indiana University is committed to creating welcoming, inclusive, and respectful campus communities where everyone can thrive and do their best work—a place where all are treated with civility and respect. If you have experienced a bias incident, you can submit a report to alert the university. Reporting an incident allows IU to support those impacted and take steps to prevent future incidents.
A bias incident is any conduct, speech, or expression, motivated in whole or in part by bias or prejudice meant to intimidate, demean, mock, degrade, marginalize, or threaten individuals or groups based on that individual or group's actual or perceived identities.
A campus team of trained university officials privately reviews all submitted bias incident reports with responses typically 1-2 business days of reporting an incident.

In furthering this mission, IU’s bias response officials provide support resources to impacted parties, promote education and dialogue, and affirm the university’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
What We Do:
What We Don’t Do:
As an institution of higher education, IU encourages the free and civil exchange of ideas and academic freedom. While the topics can sometimes be controversial and uncomfortable, IU's student-centered campuses embrace an environment where all voices are heard and valued. In addition, civility and respect are expected between and among members of the campus community so that all community members thrive and develop intellectually and ethically.
Indiana University offers various educational opportunities across its campuses for staff, faculty, and students to foster an inclusive and respectful environment that encourages dialogue and interaction about issues related to equity, social justice, and intersectional diversity.
We invite you to explore the work of Indiana University faculty and staff whose academic, personal, and professional commitment to anti-racist, diversity, equity, and inclusion work establishes IU as a national leader.
