This Presidential Election brought with it some divisive and damaging rhetoric. As a result, some individuals have engaged in maladaptive acts of violence and words of bias. It is important that we remind our Patriot family that any acts of bias or violence directed toward anyone or group will not be tolerated in our community. Inherent in our commitment to be a universal campus is the understanding and expectation that all members of our community feel included, respected, and safe.
To report and learn more about acts of bias, visit the Mason Campus Climate webpage:
We urge anyone who has experienced bias or a hate crime to report the incident and give the university an opportunity to respond.
