Report an Incident

NIU expects a level of responsible behavior by students, faculty and staff on and off campus. If something should happen where you feel that you have been a victim of discrimination based on gender, race, religion, sexual preference or physical ability, you should report it to the appropriate authority.

Bias Reporting and Discrimination

We are committed to safeguarding individual’s constitutional rights to free speech and assembly and addressing incidents of bias that may negatively affect individuals and/or communities. If anyone in the NIU community feels belittled, disrespected, or isolated based on their identity such as race, sex, age, religion, physical ability or any other factor unrelated to academic qualifications, there is a mechanism to report the incident.
