Universitywide Bias Prevention Campaign
Education as Disruption:
In this video, our panel discusses how we can repair harm and what practices and behavior contribute to an inclusive environment for faculty, staff, and students.
Why Should I Speak Up?
Daily indignities and other acts of bias disrupt learning and working environments and harm members of our community.
Speak Up! is a call to action for all members of the university community to respond when they observe bigotry and to be vigilant about disrupting personally held bias.
Combat Bigotry and Bias
- Speak up when you hear or see (observe) bigotry
Question and identify bias when I see (observe) it
Be mindful of my own behaviors
Promote and appeal to higher principles
Set limits (boundaries/expectations) on what is said or done around me
Seek help and help others to work against bigotry
Remain vigilant and persistent.
The PAUSE approach can help you gain awareness on how your biases might lead to treating others unfairly and how you can find options for new decisions.
The University of Central Arkansas drew on the SPLC guide to compile a short list of questions and responses that can help you respond to everyday bigotry that you might experience with your family or at work.
What is a Bias Incident?
A “bias incident” is defined as an act – either verbal, written, physical, or psychological that threatens or harms a person or group on the basis of actual or perceived race, religion, color, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression, national origin, ancestry, disability, marital status, civil union status, domestic partnership status, atypical heredity or cellular blood trait, military service or veteran status. Cultivating trust requires accountability.
