Addressing Bias Activity

Know the Power of Your Words – a discussion on the implications of bias and bigotry, 2013

Addressing Bias Activity

Since 2000, Cornell University has had a program to track bias that is occurring on all campuses in an effort to be proactive in creating an inclusive climate for all. Through the Reporting Bias System, the university is able to coordinate a response to all known bias activity, including bias incidents and bias crimes that occur on campus. Please note that not all reported activity may rise to the level of a bias crime or other actionable event. Cornell community members who observe an action that negatively impacts our commitment to diversity and inclusion are encouraged to report it to the university

Tracking Bias Activity

The Department of Inclusion & Workforce Diversity is responsible for collecting and tracking all reported bias activity that occurs at Cornell University that could potentially impact our commitment to diversity and inclusion, including all reports made by faculty, staff, students, and visitors to the Ithaca, Weill Cornell Medicine, and Cornell NYC Tech campuses. Information about bias activity is updated regularly, as indicated below.

Summaries of reported incidents are updated monthly. Summaries do not include identifiable information and are cumulative.
