Inclusion and Anti-Bias Efforts

It is the goal of The Graduate School (TGS) to cultivate an environment that values diverse backgrounds, approaches, and perspectives—all essential ingredients for true academic excellence.

Bias reporting

Reporting, understanding, and preventing unacceptable behaviors such as bias, sexual misconduct, and hazing are essential to maintaining our caring community. Northwestern offers various avenues for
reporting these incidents as well as receiving confidential care and support if you need it.  Learn about Northwestern's Bias Incident Response Team and how to report bias, discrimination, harassment or misconduct.
