In keeping with the Stonehill College Mission Statement, we strive to provide a learning, working and living community free from hate, discrimination, harassment, and intolerance. As such, the Bias Incident Response Protocol has been developed to address instances of bias that undermine our campus mission.
The fabric of our community can be impacted by negative behaviors and language and treatment towards one another. As such, the Bias Incident Prevention & Response Team (BIPRT) and Bias Incident Protocol were implemented to hold each other accountable and to address when individuals choose to participate in bias-related and hateful acts. The purpose of the BIPRT is to provide a structure for action, assistance, and appropriate communication in the event of a bias incident or hate crime in both a timely and productive manner. Stonehill College takes these actions seriously, and bias related incidents are addressed swiftly.
Faculty, staff, students, vendors, and visitors are strongly encouraged to report a bias incident or hate crime to the College. Additionally, we recognize that you may have witnessed or been involved in something on campus that made you feel uncomfortable, unsafe, or concerned, but was not reflective of a bias incident or hate crime as defined above. The College takes these concerns seriously and while you may complete this form to bring it to the attention of the College, you are encouraged to contact your Residence Director and/ or the Dean of Students, Dr. Kevin Piskadlo (email@example.com, 508-565-1363) so that they can be more fully addressed.
For immediate assistance or in the case of an emergency, please contact the Campus Police at x5555 from an on-campus phone, or 508-565-5555 from an off-campus or from a cell phone. To report an incident electronically, use the form below.
Please note: Reports are sent directly to the Director of Intercultural Affairs, Dean of Faculty, and Dean of Students. Persons reporting an incident may self-identify or remain anonymous by calling the Office of Student Affairs at 508-565-1363 or Office of Intercultural Affairs at 508-565-1409 or by completing the electronic form. Anonymous reporting, however, will impact the College’s ability to respond or pursue appropriate action against the alleged accused.
Expect a response: All reports of bias incidents are initially reviewed by the Director of Intercultural affairs, the Dean of Faculty, and the Dean of Students. An assessment is made to ensure that appropriate College officials can be notified of a bias incident. If the reported act is determined to be a bias incident or hate crime, the Team will work to consider appropriate educational measures to address the incident.
