In order to End Bias at Dartmouth, we must address incidents as a community where all members are responsible for preventing, intervening and supporting each other following incidents of bias.
As outlined in the new Strategic Plan called Synthesis, Dartmouth outlines how a 21st century liberal arts education integrates respect for, and understanding of, the unique and essential benefits of living, learning, sharing, and working in an inclusive global community. It is through these Core Values and our Principals of Community that together, we will end bias at Dartmouth.
If you are a witness to, or a target of, bias on the Dartmouth campus, please submit (anonymously if desired) a Bias Impact Report, so that immediate support can be provided.
Bias in New Hampshire is different than a hate crime and it is important you know how to identify bias.
The first steps toward ending bias at Dartmouth are through education and experiences. All members of our campus community contribute towards an inclusive campus climate by offering educational programming, workshops, courses and events specifically designed to engage you in developing your understanding of your membership in our global community. Numerous programs are available each week on campus and in the community. Explore this list of campus departments and peer programs for more information.
You are never expected to intervene in a dangerous situation and should always call 911 in an emergency.
In non-emergency situations where you feel you may be witnessing bias, and are comfortable intervening, there are strategies that you can employ to interrupt the bias incident.
Dartmouth has developed a network of resources throughout campus including faculty, professionally trained staff, peer programs by and for students, Administration support, and Hanover PD to support members of our community who have been targeted by bias. The fastest way to trigger this network into action is through the Bias Impact Report or call Safety & Security at 603-646-4000.
