Reporting Bias Incidents/Hate Crimes
As a college, we are committed to a diverse, safe, and inclusive learning environment. In our effort to support the success of campus community members, we have joined over 100 campuses in implementing bias response protocols to address bias incidents and hate crimes on campus.
- Bias Incident- An act or behavior that demeans, intimidates, and threatens individuals, members
of a group, and a community.
- Hate Crime - A criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by the offender’s biases.
Bias-Based Incident Reporting
Employees should report all bias-based incidents that occur with other employees and/or students through the Bias Incident/Hate Crimes Reporting Form. In addition, you may report the bias-based incident to your supervisor.
Students should report all bias-based incidents that occur with other students and employees through the Bias Incident/Hate Crimes Reporting Form. In addition, you may report the bias-based incident to Campus Safety and Security or any Edmonds College employee.
The Student Code of Conduct process will address any student conduct violations. The Human Resources (HR) process will address any employee conduct violations. These may happen in tandem with a Bias Response Team (BRT) response.
