Team Purpose

The Inclusive Community Response Team (ICRT) works closely with leaders, offices and departments across campus to coordinate the university’s response to incidents of bias, hate and prejudice within the Central community. 

ICRT will share reports with the departments, offices and officials that are qualified to investigate these incidents and who will identify and impose sanctions on responsible parties as appropriate; ICRT also will connect reporting parties to on-campus support networks and resources and will work with Central’s leaders to formulate a timely and effective campus-wide response when appropriate.

Reporting Bias

If you encounter or suspect incidents of bias, you are encouraged to submit a report to be reviewed by the Inclusive Community Response Team. Whenever possible, bias reports will be reviewed within two business days excluding scheduled campus closures.
