Carroll College recognizes the uniqueness and dignity of the human person and the religious and moral values implied in one's relationship to God, self and others. In full support of the Carroll College Mission Statement, this policy on hate or bias incidents is designed to help protect the community from actions that undermine the college's mission and to provide assistance and support for those who have been targeted.
Students found in violation of the Carroll College of Student Conduct for an incident in which hate/bias is a factor can be further sanctioned. The sanctions may be enhanced or increased in severity when it is found that the student has intentionally selected the person or persons against whom the underlying violation was committed, or selcted the property which was damaged, or violated other provisions of the Carroll Code because of the person's origin, age, national origin, race, color, gender, physical or mental disability, religion, creed, marital status, or sexual orientation. Whether intent is present in the violation shall be determined by consideration of all the relevant circumstances.
