Chapman University is committed to being a welcoming and inclusive community, which is strengthened intellectually and socially by the diversity of viewpoints, backgrounds, experiences, and identities of its students, faculty, and staff. Any bias incident or activity can jeopardize the active and open pursuit of education and opportunity within and beyond the Chapman community. These incidents require a comprehensive approach to uphold the rights of all campus community members.
The Cross-Cultural Education and Resource Team (CERT) at Chapman University is based out of the Student Affairs division, but includes members from all across campus in order to best serve the needs of our community. CERT is committed to providing preventative education about the potential impacts of bias and hate on our campus, and it offers connections to campus resources and new educational opportunities for the general campus community following reported concerns. CERT is not a crisis response team, and encourages all students, faculty and staff who believe a hate crime may have been committed to contact Public Safety and local authorities.
Our reporting form is a quick way to inform us about an incident. You may also contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or concerns. Learn more about the CERT team on the About Us page or our FAQs, and visit the Cross-Cultural Initiatives website for more information on the programs and resources offered across campus.
