Hate/Bias Incident Reporting Process Document

In 2007 the University of New Mexico created the Hate Crimes Task Force and charged them with the responsibility of reviewing issues regarding campus climate. The task force wrote a brief report that recommended that an office be developed that would support a university-wide initiative on diversity and campus climate. We would like to recognize the Hate Crimes Task Force for their hard work in initiating a dialogue that led to the creation of the 2008 Hate/Bias Incident Work Group.

The Division for Equity and Inclusion, in collaboration with members of the broader campus community, has developed the following procedures to ensure a timely and appropriate response to hate or bias incidents impacting students, staff, faculty, or community members on campus. When you submit a report using these procedures, it will be determined whether the hate/bias incident is a crime or a non-criminal incident. If you believe a crime has occurred and/or if you need immediate assistance, contact the UNM Police Department at 277- 2241.
