About STOP Bias

stopbiasabout

STOP Bias was created to provide the SU community with resources to help those who have been impacted by bias incidents on and around campus. The website also includes information on how to identify bias, and ways in which community members can get involved with others and create a safe and welcoming environment for everyone. STOP Bias is a University-wide collective effort based in the Inclusion, Community, and Citizenship portfolio of the Division of Student Affairs. The "STOP" in "STOP Bias" reflects the important steps in eliminating acts of bias in our community: "Spot it. Talk about it. Open your mind. Prevent it.

A key feature of the STOP Bias website is an anonymous web-based reporting tool that can be used by SU students, faculty and staff who have experienced or witnessed an act of bias. The  tool collects information from the incident, and offers the reporting person an opportunity to be contacted for further support, if they wish. To access the reporting tool, click here. For consultation, suport, and referrals, contact The Office of Student Assistance at (315) 443-4357.

About our logo
The colorful, converging lines of the STOP Bias logo represent the variety of individuals and identities in our community, and the interactions among them. It was designed by graphic artist and SU alum Laura Baez.
