Bias Related Incidents
Bias related crime does occur on college campuses. Siena College's commitment to diversity and respect, as two of our Franciscan Values, shapes the College's expectation that members of our community will strive to ensure hate and bias related incidents do not happen.

What to do if it Happens - Hate/bias related crimes or incidents, or other emergencies may be reported by dialing Public Safety at ext. 2376 or in an emergency, by dialing 911 or using any of the emergency call boxes located on campus. In addition, incidents may be reported using the Anonymous Crime Tips form. Incidents may be reported to Public Safety, the Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students, or to any College official who, in turn, will take the proper action to notify the appropriate College agency.

Notification to the College Community- Notice of Bias Related Incidents are reported to the College community via email directing faculty, staff and students to a the password protected website. You may view the reports via this link:
