Bias Reporting

Northern Illinois University (NIU) strives to create a welcoming, inclusive and equitable community where all people are treated with dignity and respect. 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. 

When an incident is reported, the reporting party will be contacted and informed about support resources available to them at the university. If the behavior appears to be a violation of university policy and/or the law, the reporting party will be informed about additional ways the incident may be addressed.

If you have observed or experienced a bias incident, please report it through any of the following ways:
