SMART Connections
Bias Incident Report Form
"Or" Conversation Series

"SMART Connections" is our Office's peer-to-peer mentoring program, which matches upperclassmen Peer Mentors with new, incoming students. Peer Mentors are trained to work with their student mentee(s) throughout the year, and help to establish a sense of community while aiding in the transition from high-school to college. 

Bias Incident Report Form

This form is to report non-emergency bias incidents toward students. In case of emergency, please call 911. A bias incident is "an act against a person or property that is motivated, in whole or in part, by the offender's bias against race, color, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, or religion, or veteran/military status."

The Office of Multicultural Programs is pleased to sponser and host a multitude of conversations, all centralized around the idea of choice. These conversations aims to unify and create natural dialogue within our community, and are open to all parties interested. It is our hope that such conversations--held in both a respectable and engaging manner--will help to set an example for others: teaching them ways to interact with controversial or "hot-button" issues in today's society.
