Incidents of Bias and Hate
Hood College is proud of its diverse community, and we are committed to cultivating and strengthening an inclusive, tolerant, multi-cultural, and intellectually open community with equal opportunity for all. By encouraging and celebrating our differences, we create an environment that promotes freedom of thought and academic excellence.
We condemn all racism and hatred in any form and believe in the importance of inclusion, diversity and mutual respect. This belief is rooted in our core values. The College will take immediate and appropriate corrective action when it determines that these values have not been upheld and an incident of bias, hate, or discrimination has occurred.
It is our goal to have a respectful and nurturing academic community that affirms the inherent worth and dignity of every individual, and celebrates the diverse backgrounds of all students, faculty and staff. We will strive to value each person for their uniqueness and difference and to encourage all community members to reach their fullest potential.
