Hate Crimes

The University of San Francisco strives to foster a safe and healthy learning environment that embodies diversity and inclusion of all members of its community. The Hate Crime statistics are separated by category of prejudice. The numbers for most of the specific crime categories are part of the overall statistics reported for each year. The only exceptions to this are the addition of Simple Assault, Intimidation, and any other crime that involves bodily injury that is not already included in the required reporting categories. If a Hate Crime occurs where there is an incident involving intimidation; destruction, damage, or vandalism of property; larceny; simple assault or other bodily injury, the law requires that the statistic be reported as a hate crime even though there is no requirement to report the crime classification in any other area of the Annual Security Report.

Note: A hate or bias related crime is not a separate, distinct crime, but is the commission of a criminal offense that was motivated by the offender’s bias. For example, a subject assaults a victim, which is a crime. The assault will be classified as a hate/bias crime if proven that the offender was motivated to commit the offense because of his/her bias against the victim’s race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or disability.
