At Marymount University, we practice community by sharing our experiences, listening carefully to others, and debating ideas in civil and constructive ways. However, there are times when the actions and behaviors of community members impact others negatively. The Bias Incident Response Team (BIRT) was established to respond to these actions and behaviors with resources, support, and actions. Marymount strives to be a safe and inclusive campus community. Bias incidents directly impact our ability to collaborate and work together and directly undermine our core university values.
Marymount University has no tolerance for hate. The university does not tolerate hate crimes or bias-motivated incidents and will respond to them with appropriate sanctions.
Students, faculty, or staff who experience or witness any form of hate crime or bias-motivated incident should report it immediately.
