Bias motivated incidents are defined as incidents involving vandalism, theft, intimidation, harassment, and assault that are motivated by race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, national origin, or gender identity. The Bias Incident Response Protocol offers an effective and efficient process for individuals and/or groups to report bias incidents and/or hate crimes. It also outlines University procedures that will be instituted to respond to such acts. The protocol should be implemented whenever a bias incident or hate crime is perceived or suspected to have occurred on Northeastern University’s campus and/or in our educational programs.
