The purpose of this site is to inform and educate members of the Mount Holyoke community on process and procedures related to insensitivity, bias, and discrimination incidents. Such incidents work contrary to the inclusiveness that forms the foundation for our educational community, and so we take any reports of them seriously. We want to encourage you to review the content on this site.
