Report a hate crime/bias motivated incident: http://www.unco.edu/biasresponse/submit.html

To report a hate crime/bias motivated incident please click on the link above and fill out the online form. You may report a hate crime/bias-motivated incident whether you are the victim or an observer. Hate crimes/bias-motivated incidents include:

  • Name-calling
  • Derogatory notes posted on someone’s door
  • GLBTA organization signs being torn down or defaced
  • Verbal or physical harassment, threats, or physical assault.
  • Discrimination from peers, staff or professors based on one’s sexual orientation or gender identity/expression

Why is reporting important?

  1. Because Colorado law states that every individual or corporation who has reasonable grounds to believe a crime has been committed has a duty to report the suspected crime to law enforcement authorities (Colorado Revised Statutes § 18-8-115). See: Bias-motivated crimes
  2. Students are entitled to know about campus safety.
  3. Hate crimes must be identifiable and recorded to comply with legal reporting requirements.
  4. Before steps can be taken to prevent and respond to incidents that are motivated by sexual orientation or gender identity/expression bias, you must be able to identify the nature of incidents that are occurring.
  5. For students to feel supported and safe, they must know that campus authorities are attentive to all reports of bias-motivated incidents. Campus authorities can only be attentive if incidents are reported!
