A bias incident is defined at SMU as an action, behavior, or expression against an individual or groups actual or perceived identity. Individuals or groups may experience bias based on, but not limited to: race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, ability, or gender identity and expression. Such bias incidents may be intentional or unintentional and affect the individual or SMU community.
The university is committed to addressing incidents of bias impacting the members of the community on and off campus, and appreciates your help in bringing these incidents to our attention. This form can be completed by either victims of bias-related incidents or witnesses to them. Please include as much information as possible. All reports will be kept confidential to the extent possible; you also have the option to file anonymously.
