Description:
According to the FBI, hate crimes have been on the rise at K-12 and college campuses across the country since 2015. The U.S. Department of Education reported a 25% increase in hate crimes at K-12 and college campuses between 2015 to 2016 and again between 2016 to 2017. CSU's Bias Assessment Team has been hard at work tracking incidents of bias and providing support to those impacted by incidents of bias. This session will cover CSU's Bias Assessment Team, its mission, the Bias Reporting System, and what happens after an incident of bias has been reported. Participants in this session will learn the definition of a bias incident, the difference between an incident of bias and a hate crime, and how the First Amendment applies to incidents of bias.
