Bias Incident Response Team (B.I.R.T.)

Report A Bias Incident Or Hate Crime

Napa Valley College is committed to providing a safe place for students and staff to work and learn. In order to fulfill this commitment, Campus Police and the College Administration need to know when a bias incident or hate crime occurs. You can report a bias incident or hate crime as a witness or a victim.

Although it's most helpful to know who is making the report, you can remain anonymous. The report you make below will go directly to the Bias Incident Response Team and Campus Police for follow-up. If you prefer to make a report in person, you can go directly to Campus Police (707-253-3333) or you can contact a member of the Bias Incident Response Team.

What is a hate crime? A "hate crime" is any violation of criminal law motivated by the victim's actual or perceived race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or disability.

What is a bias incident? A act that is not a violation of criminal law, but that is motivated by bigotry or hate based on the victim's actual or perceived race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or disability. Bias incidents could include violations of College Policy or Codes of Student Conduct. Use of racial slurs or name calling are examples of a bias incident.
