Students at Santa Clara University are supposed call to report any and all “bias incidents” to 911.
“If the bias incident is in progress or just occurred: ALWAYS CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY,” the university website states.
“SANTA CLARA UNIVERSITY PROHIBITS BEHAVIOR MOTIVATED BY BIAS.” Tweet This The university defines a “bias incident” as “a speech, act, or harassing action that targets, threatens, or attacks an individual or group because of their actual or perceived race, color, national origin, ethnicity, religious affiliation, sex, gender identity, disability, or sexual orientation.”
The university website does not provide any examples of “bias incidents” but universities with similar policies included “microaggressive comments” and “writing on a whiteboard” as bias incidents.
