Why did the Heritage College develop this Bias Reporting Tool?
The Inclusion Bias Reporting Tool was developed as an online portal to receive complaints and concerns from Heritage College students about issues related to diversity and inclusion. We created this Bias Reporting Tool because we know that inappropriate, hurtful and/or harmful incidents can take place in any community. This form is meant as an opportunity for students to inform the college when these incidents occur, so we may validate the student’s experience, assist the student and/or intervene in ongoing situations.
This Bias Reporting Tool is not a replacement for the value of interpersonal relationships. The Office of Inclusion may be your first stop, but we want every student to feel comfortable connecting with any faculty or staff member of Heritage College when they need to report an issue. These individual conversations are what will continue to move us forward in addressing issues of bias and discrimination.
