Does the institution have a discrimination response protocol or committee (sometimes called a bias response team) to respond to and support those who have experienced or witnessed a bias incident, act of discrimination or hate crime?:
A brief description of the institution’s discrimination response protocol or team (including examples of actions taken during the previous three years):
Antioch College is working to create a bias response team. Currently, our Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion coordinates the protocol to response to bias complaints. With recent revisions to our Racial Discrimination Prevention Policy, all bias complaints are submitted online using our bias incident report form. The Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion monitors the delegated email account on a daily basis. Bias complaints are referred to one of three administrators depending on the status of the respondent (i.e. student cases are referred to the Dean of Students for the student judicial process). The Vice President has to refer the bias complaint within 48 hours and the investigation must begin within three days. As indicated previously, we are in the process of making additional revisions to this policy as well as all related anti-discrimination policies.
