Social Climate Support Team

The Social Climate Support Team works with students and employees to provide support when an individual has experienced bias, racism, or microaggressions. As an institution of higher education, we welcome a broad array of expression and thought from many different perspectives. Behaviors and speech that show bias hate are harmful to not only those who experience them, but to our broader university community.
