Bias Incident Response Team

The Bias Incident Response Team assists the university community in addressing actions committed against people, property, and identifiable groups that are motivated by a bias against race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, age, physical ability, disability, or any other type of bias. 

The purpose of the team is to review reports of incidents involving students and employees and recommend an appropriate response (investigation/communication).  The team supports those who are targeted by referring them to available campus resources.  Where the team suspects there may be criminal activity, they will report it to University of Cincinnati Police Department and notify General Counsel which serves in an advisory capacity.  The team may confer with the Student of Concern Committee to determine if the offended or perpetrator (if known) has been previously identified.  If the nature of the incident rises to the level of a hate crime, it will be referred to the University of Cincinnati Police Department and Threat Assessment Group. 

Report an Incident

We encourage members of our university community to report bias incidents as soon as they occur.  Reports may be made by phone or online. In both cases, the estimated reporting time is 15 minutes in order to get as many details as possible.
