University stops telling students to call 9-1-1 for ‘bias incidents’

Santa Clara University has removed a controversial university policy telling students call 9-1-1 to report “bias incidents.”

Campus Reform previously reported that the California university urging students to report bias incidents—which the university defined as “a speech, act, or harassing action that targets, threatens, or attacks an individual or group because of their actual or perceived race, color, national origin, ethnicity, religious affiliation, sex, gender identity, disability, or sexual orientation”—to the local authorities.

“If [a] bias incident is in progress or just occurred: ALWAYS CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY,” the website stated.

After Campus Reform reported the story, the university removed the directive that students report bias to 9-1-1.
