What is a bias incident?
A bias incident targets an individual based on their age, color, religion, disability (physical or mental), race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, or veteran status, as identified in the student code of conduct.
Students, faculty and staff at Albert Einstein College of Medicine are expected to respect the rights and dignity of other students, faculty, and staff.
