Smith College is committed to maintaining a diverse community in an atmosphere of mutual respect and appreciation of differences. The purpose of Bias Response Team is to support the College’s efforts to maintain an inclusive campus climate by establishing a mechanism by which it responds to bias incidents. The Bias Response Team is not a mechanism for investigative or disciplinary action. However, it enables the College to track bias incidents, collect aggregate data, identify educational responses, and connect individuals affected by bias incidents with supportive resources. The Bias Incident Reporting Protocol can be found here.
Bias incidents covered under through this mechanism include an act of bigotry, harassment or intimidation based on age, color, creed, disability, gender identity, gender expression, race, religion, nation/ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation or veteran status committed on campus for which the respondent cannot be identified.
This includes, but is not limited to, slurs, graffiti, written messages, or images that harass or intimidate individuals or groups because of their membership in the above listed protected classes.
