Incident Team Reports
Indiana University has made a commitment to work towards a campus that is free from discrimination and that celebrates the diversity of its various community members. No university, however, is immune to the problems of racism, sexism, homophobia, religious bias, etc. The Racial Incidents Team; the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Anti-Harassment Team; the Gender Incidents Team; and the Religious Bias Incidents Team are four resources that Indiana University uses to address the problem of discrimination based on race, nationality, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.
The Teams have two purposes:
1. To assist and support students who report an incident of discrimination based on race, nationality, religion, gender, or sexual orientation in finding a resolution; and 2. To document information about these incidents in order to address discrimination more effectively.
The Teams function under the auspices of the Dean of Students and the Dean for Women’s Affairs, and consist of staff and faculty who have expertise in diversity issues and conflict resolution. The Teams meet regularly to discuss new and ongoing cases. They are designed for use by students, but they also assist other members of the university community who are dealing with incidents of discrimination.
