Campus Climate Concern Form
While freedom of expression and the open exchange of ideas are important to the University of Mississippi, actions and behaviors that are bias-motivated, prejudiced, or otherwise disrespectful can negatively impact individuals or groups.
Members of the university community who have experienced or witnessed perceived/alleged bias incidents are encouraged to complete this reporting form. The form will give you the opportunity to share the details of the incident including the impact it has had on you and/or others. The Bias Education & Response Team (BERT) will review all submissions to determine appropriate next steps. Our priority is connecting those who have been impacted by bias incidents to the appropriate resources and support.
BERT is not an investigative, adjudicatory, or disciplinary body and does not function in lieu of any disciplinary or complaint processes within or outside of the University.
If you have questions, you may also e-mail email@example.com or call the Office of Diversity and Community Engagement at 662-915-2933. For immediate assistance or emergencies, please contact the University of Mississippi’s Department of Police and Campus Safety at 662-915-7234.
