Bias Incident Reporting
Ridgewater College is committed to creating and maintaining an environment in which all members of our community – students, faculty, and staff – are treated with respect and dignity, free from bias and harassment. Faculty, staff, and students together are responsible for maintaining an educational and working environment that is consistent with our vision, mission, and guiding principles.
Incidents of bias, harassment, and hate crimes all include some form of unwelcome conduct that is based on a person’s race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, disability, age, marital status, family status, status with regard to public assistance, or any other protected characteristic.
The Ridgewater community may use the form below to report any behaviors that evidence bias involving other current students, faculty, or staff, whether these behaviors occur on or off campus. Please note that if you choose to report anonymously, our ability to respond may be limited. If you make an anonymous report, Ridgewater will not be able to respond directly to you, but will assess the information submitted and consider response options.
If you need to report an emergency, please dial 911.
This form is NOT a police report. If you are a victim, or are aware of criminal conduct, we encourage you to contact local law enforcement.
