Student Bias Incident Policy

At Bellin College we support the freedom for all to express their points of view and the open exchange of ideas. This is true even in situations where those points of view may run counter or potentially be inflammatory to some. However, freedom of expression does not give permission for anyone to engage in speech or behavior that is rooted in intentional displays of hate or to act on their biases in ways that intimidate or threaten the safety of other individuals.

Student Bias Incident Policy

Student Freedom of Speech

As an educational institution, Bellin College supports the freedom of expression of ideas and, statement, we affirm the worth and dignity of all people and the limitless value of their intellectual potential; the commitment to create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment illustrated through the beliefs and actions of our workforce and student body; lifelong learning; innovation; broad vision, effective communication, a sense of the inter-relatedness of all knowledge, sensitivity to the human condition, and a global perspective; the value of a lifelong commitment to service; and the value of ethical leadership that is inclusive, collaborative, directed towards effecting change for the greater good.

The College encourages students to make independent judgments about the worth and validity of ideas and to contest ideas with which they disagree. Any effort by members of the College community to limit openness in this academic community is a matter of serious concern and hinders the freedom of expression and the discovery of truth. All students are, therefore, free to express their points of view on, or opposition to, any issue of public interest within reasonable restrictions of time, place, and manner.

Student Off-Campus Event Policy and Procedure

Students participating in off-campus student hosted events represent Bellin College. This representation of the College may reflect both positively and negatively on the image of the institution as well as the organization.

There must also be an understanding that the individual represents the organization or group running the event, and the organization or group needs to be responsible for the individuals. This extends to alumni participation at events. All college policies and procedures, Student Behaviors, handbook rules, etc. must be followed at all events on and off campus.
