Message to the Bowdoin Community — November 24, 2015

Dear students, faculty, and staff,

I am writing to follow up on my November 14 note about the work the Bias Incident Group will do to create a bias incident protocol for the College. As we begin our work to establish policies and procedures for our systematic response to bias incidents, we want your ideas and comments. You may share them with us through this dedicated e-mail address: It would be very helpful if you could provide your insights before winter break. Please include your name so we are able to follow up with any questions we may have.

Our plan is to have a proposed protocol available for campus review in the first two weeks of the new semester.


Clayton Rose, as chair for the Bias Incident Group
