Bias Incidents and Hate Crimes:

Northeastern University values diversity, inclusion and social justice. The University is committed to providing a safe, respectful educational and work environment that is free of harassment, intimidation, and physical and emotional harm.

A bias incident is any conduct, speech, or expression that demeans, degrades, or harasses an individual or group based upon membership in a protected category as recognized by law or Northeastern University policy including race, color, religion, religious creed, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, veteran or disability status. A hate crime is criminal conduct motivated by hatred, bias, or prejudice, based on actual or perceived protected class status as defined by relevant state and federal laws including race, color, religion, religious creed, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, veteran or disability status.
