Bias-Motivated Incidents

Bias-motivated incidents are defined as behavior, which constituted an expression of hostility against the person or property of another. This may include such behavior as non-threatening name calling, using racial slurs/language or disseminating racial leaflets or graffiti. Actions that are bias-motivated such as but not limited to threatening phone call, hate mail, physical assault, and vandalism are unwelcome in the Linfield community.

It should be our expectation as Linfield community members to show respect for others regardless of a person's race, creed, disability, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or nationality.

Furthermore, one of our priorities should be to avoid all forms of harassing or offensive behavior.
Bias-motivated incidents are a violation of state and federal laws. Bias-motivated incidents will be thoroughly investigated and subject to the College judicial process and/or criminal prosecution by local, state or federal authorities.

Report any bias motivated incidents to College staff, faculty or to local law enforcement immediately.
