Bias Incident Report Data

Marquette University is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive and welcoming environment for students, faculty, staff, alumni and visitors. Maintaining this sort of community requires all of us to learn about and address incidents of bias and discrimination on our campus.

These statistics are published in order for the Marquette University community to track, examine and understand the nature of bias incidents on our campus. Periodically, it is difficult to identify the perpetrator(s) of bias. However, when identifiable the University can conduct an investigate and hold the individual(s) accountable for their actions. By keeping a record we are able to understand trends and inform the community of the actions taken address the incident(s). In addition, publishing the data enables us to hold ourselves accountable and potentially take proactive measures to prevent future bias.
