Bias-related Crime Prevention Information

Bias-related incidents are defined as behavior which constitutes an expression of hostility against the person or property of another because of the person's age, race, creed, gender, disability, marital status and sexual orientation.

As of August 14, 2008, the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security policy and campus crime was amended to include new reportable hate crimes. These crimes are: assault, menacing, aggravated harassment, harassment, grand larceny, petit larceny and criminal mischief. These new reporting categories are only reported if motivated by bias as determined by the bias categories listed above.

If you are a victim of, or witness a hate/bias incident, please notify the Department of Public Safety immediately at 516.323.3500 or dial 11 from any campus emergency phone.
