Dear members of the Lafayette community,

The Bias Response Team was established by a coalition of students, faculty, and administrators to provide a mechanism to respond to acts of intolerance and to resolve conflicts in a spirit of civil discourse and mutual accountability.

Bias or hate incidents of any kind are contrary to Lafayette’s community values and threaten the safety, well-being, and educational experience of all members of our community. Such incidents will not be tolerated and will be addressed whenever and wherever they occur. To learn how to report suspected bias incidents or to learn more, visit the One Pard site.

Consider filing a report if you experience or witness an incident in which an action taken by a person or group is perceived to be malicious or discriminatory toward another person or group. Such actions may be based on bias or prejudice relating to such characteristics as race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, gender, or gender identity.

In addition to using the One Pard reporting form, you can speak with a resident assistant, call Public Safety at 610.330.5330, contact Alex Hendrickson, chair of Bias Response Team at 610.330.5959, hendrica@lafayette.edu, or in Farinon 107, or report to any faculty or staff member.

The Bias Response Team provides personal outreach to any individual that indicates their name in a bias incident report and your confidentiality will be respected as the process unfolds. Reporting incidents of bias are an important way to prevent others in the community from experiencing such events.

At Lafayette, we hold each other to high standards and strive to create a caring and supportive community. Do your part to hold one another to high standards and to help create a caring and supportive community.

G. Christopher Hunt, Dean of Students
