NIU expects a level of responsible behavior by students, faculty and staff on and off campus. If something should happen where you feel that you have been a victim of discrimination based on gender, race, religion, sexual preference or physical ability, you should report it to the appropriate authority.
We're committed to protecting our students' and employees' rights to free speech and assembly and to addressing incidents of bias. If you feel belittled, disrespected or isolated based on your identity (race, sex, age, religion, physical ability or another factor unrelated to professional/academic qualifications), you can report the bias incident.
In addition to helping resolve bias incidents, we collect data on bias incident reports. We produce a summary of the reports submitted each year and analyze the data to identify trends. This allows us to help develop data-driven strategies to address bias trends and patterns. Learn more about bias incident data and summaries.
In case of emergency:
Are you a victim of sexual misconduct?
