Presbyterian College is committed to nurturing an inclusive environment that fosters mutual respect for all members of our campus. Our honor code highlights the importance of respecting “persons and property of the community” and emphasizes that PC “will not condone discourteous or dishonest treatment by peers”.
What should I report?
We encourage you to report any incident of bias that may occur within our community. We define bias as an intentional or unintentional display of hostility or bigotry in word, deed that a reasonable person would conclude is directed at a member of the PC community based on age, citizenship, color, disability, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, gender/perceived gender, genetic information, marital status, nationality/immigration status, parental status, physical appearance, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation/perceived sexual orientation, socioeconomic status/class, or present or past service in the military.
Bias incidents can take on a variety of forms, including but not limited to discrimination, spoken or written hate speech or harassment, offensive visual representations, threats, vandalism, physical confrontation, and similar conduct or communications on or through social media.
Emergencies, Injuries, and Violence
The bias report form is not a substitute for a call to first responders. If you witness or experience any actually or threatened emergency – such as violence, injured persons, a fire, or a suspected crime, you should call 911 and/or contact Campus Police immediately.
Who can report?
We encourage all members of our community to report any incident of bias whether you are a complainant, bystander/witness, or concerned member of the PC community.
