The Bias Incident Response Team follows an established protocol to “ensure a timely, efficient, and effective response to campus incidents involving Evergreen students, which may be characterized as hate crimes or bias incidents.”
“The bias incident protocol is initiated in cases of what may be a hate crime, bias incident, or when it is clear that the incident would have a serious impact on groups by virtue of their race, color, religion, ethnic/national origin, gender expression, sex, age, disability or sexual orientation identities. The purpose of convening the protocol response team is not to respond to more private incidents, especially when victims are uncomfortable with a public response, but rather to deal with more visible incidents that are likely to significantly affect the community.”
