UMD Bias/Hate-Based Incident Reporting
In keeping with the University of Maryland's Mission Statement, Letters and Sciences (LTSC) aims to foster opportunities, for all students, regardless of their identity or background, to explore and prepare for the challenging and exciting path to a major and graduation. Our office is committed to cultivating an environment where diversity and inclusion/inclusive practices are a cornerstone for the holistic development of students and staff alike. As such, our office is taking the initiative to inform the LTSC community about the University of Maryland's Hate-Bias Incidents Report Form. This form, provided by the Office of Diversity & Inclusion, is intended to address instances of bias that undermine our campus mission. For more information, visit the University's Bias Incident Support Services website.
If you, a colleague, or peer encounter any bias/hate-based incident, we would encourage you to fill out this reporting form (provided by the Office of Diversity & Inclusion) or contact the following on-campus resources:
- Report incidents.
- Contact UMPD to report any concern of hate/bias crimes so these matters can be investigated. Phone: (301) 405-3333; website: https://cm.maxient.com/reportingform.php?UnivofMaryland&layout_id=50.
- Contact the Office of Civil Rights and Sexual Misconduct (OCRSM) to report hate-bias incidences. OCRSM provides victim support as well as tracks, monitors and maps incidences.
- Seek care and guidance, and encourage your colleagues to do the same.
