Bias Incidents on Campus Are Subject of Talk, Feb. 16
February 6, 2017

The campus community is invited to a presentation by Associate Dean of Students Cynthia Polk-Johnson about the university’s procedures for dealing with bias incidents on campus. The talk on Thursday, February 16, at 1 p.m. in the Hodges Library auditorium is sponsored by the Libraries’ Diversity Committee.

The university is committed to maintaining a safe environment grounded in civility and respect for all members of our campus community. Have you witnessed or been the recipient of a bias based incident? Do you know bias incident definitions?

Polk-Johnson will speak about the university’s definition of bias, how to report a bias incident, and the role and purpose of UT’s Bias Education and Response Team which supports and guides students who are dealing with a bias incident.
