b"When you become aware that a student has experienced a bias/hate crime, as defined below, recognize that the student may be experiencing a wide range of emotions including shame, anger, fear and denial. The student will benefit from a caring response that allows him/her to feel some level of control in choosing the action to address the crime or incident. The Federal Clery Act defines hate crimes as: Any crime that manifests evidence that the victim was intentionally selected because of the victim's actual or perceived race; religion; gender; sexual orientation; ethnicity or physical/mental disabilities. This includes murder and non-negligent manslaughter, negligent manslaughter, forcible sex offenses, non-forcible sex offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson, and also larceny-theft, simple assault, intimidation, and destruction/damage/ vandalism. State and local law may also cover certain incidents in which the individual was targeted because of height, weight, immigration or citizenship status, marital status or socioeconomic status. If the student believes s/he is the victim of a crime, s/he should immediately contact the police, so that the matter can be addressed and support services made available. Traumatic Experiences218"
