Bias Incident Response

Clemson University seeks to be an inclusive community that welcomes and respects all people. Every member of our community is expected to commit to maintaining a safe, respectful and welcoming community. Acts that are an affront to the core values of the institution, which are integrity, honesty and respect, are not tolerated. Such actions destroy the sense of community we all share. Additionally, acts of intolerance do untold and unjust harm to the well-being, dignity and safety of those who are victimized by these acts.

Students who perceive that they have experienced a bias-motivated incident, as well as students, faculty or staff who are witnesses to a bias incident involving any member of our community, are urged to report the incident immediately by one of the following means:

1. Complete an online bias incident report here, or
