Campus and Community Index

Bowdoin College encourages freedom of expression, open dialogue, and mutual respect.

Discrimination or harassment of others on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, social class, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, age, marital status, place of birth, veteran status, or against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability has no place in our intellectual community.

Members of the College community are encouraged to report behavior that is inconsistent with these values; these reports can make a difference. Even if you don't want or expect any action to be taken, this record helps the College to better understand and address these issues.

Here's how you can report these incidents:
