ADL Logo

The University of Wisconsin La Crosse has partnered with Anti-Defamation League's Hate/Uncycled initiative to provide students, faculty, staff, and administrators with educational programming designed to combat hate and bias incidents on college campuses.

About the ADL

Founded in 1913 in response to an escalating climate of antisemitism and bigotry, ADL's long-standing mission is to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment for all. Today, ADL continues to fight all forms of hate with the same vigor and passion. A global leader in exposing extremism, delivering anti-bias education, and fighting online hate, ADL's ultimate goal is a world in which no group or individual suffers from bias, discrimination, or hate. Through ADL's Hate/Uncycled program, campus administrators, campus safety teams, staff, faculty, and students are more fully equipped to understand and challenge bias on their campuses, work toward inclusive campus climate policies and practices, and respond effectively to bias or hate incidents should they occur.

About Hate/Uncycled

Hate/Uncycled is ADL's model for preventing and responding to bias and hate incidents. The framework encourages campus communities to think about bias incidents through the lenses of prevention, preparation, response, healing, and education.
