Hate/Bias

UWM is committed to creating and supporting a campus climate that is respectful and supportive of all who work, live, study or participate in activities or events in our campus community.

Members of the UWM community who have been subjected to, or who have witnessed, an incident of hate or bias are encouraged to submit a report to EDS. UWM defines a hate- or bias-motivated incident as any disruptive conduct — oral, written, graphic or physical — that is directed against an individual, or individuals, because of their actual or perceived protected characteristics, as defined by UWM’s Discriminatory Conduct Policy.

After reviewing the report, a member of the EDS staff will contact the reporter to discuss the incident, to provide options for addressing the concerns, and to share information about campus and community support services. Those services include UWM’s Rapid Response Team, a group composed of representatives from different campus offices — including the Dean of Students Office, Inclusive Excellence Center, and the student cultural and advocacy centers — which provides care and support in response to incidents of hate and bias.

If you wish to report a hate/bias incident, please use the Hate/Bias Incident Reporting online form. You may also contact our office at (414) 229-5923 or report in person in Mitchell Hall, Rm. 359.
