Bias Reporting

Bias is defined as prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair.

Roanoke College values diversity in its community.  Any form of discrimination, lack of respect, or act of intolerance against any person or organization based on race, religion, ethnic background, gender, gender orientation, or disability is in contradiction with college principles and unacceptable.

Roanoke College does not discriminate against students, employees, or applicants on the basis of race, color, gender, creed, religion, age, sexual orientation, marital status, national or ethnic origin, disability, or veteran status. (Source: Roanoke College Discrimination Policy)
