From Campus Reform:

According to The Daily Cardinal, students, faculty, and staff from UW schools recently attended a Hate/Bias Response Symposium at the system’s flagship Madison campus to discuss solutions such as expanding the network of staff responsible for responding to bias incidents and identifying best practices and legal limitations for those employees.

Earlier this year, however, a report by UW-LaCrosse concluded that more than one out of every 10 bias reports filed during the 2015-2016 school year were either fake or “not a bias/hate incident,” while those that were deemed legitimate included such “hate incidents” as a picture of a crucifix, pro-Trump chalk drawings, and a blog about life on campus as a white student.
