Dear Pratt Community,
During the COVID-19 pandemic we have witnessed a rise in divisiveness and increased incidents of hate and violence towards Asian and Pacific Islander, Black, Jewish, Latinx, Muslim and Transgender communities. At Pratt, we actively denounce xenophobia, racism, bigotry, prejudice, bullying, anti-semitism, anti-Muslim hatred, and religious intolerance of any kind. It is the responsibility of each and every Pratt community member to create a culture in which everyone can thrive without fear of hate, bias, discrimination, and/or harassment.
As the semester begins and we return to campus, we would like to remind the community of Pratt’s policies and community standards, as well as procedures for reporting bias, discrimination, and sexual misconduct. Please take a moment to review our updated Community Standards, Title IX, Human Rights, Non-Discrimination and Non-Retaliation Policies on the Bias, Discrimination & Sexual Misconduct Reporting webpage.
If you have experienced an incident of bias, discrimination, harassment, or sexual misconduct, or would like to report an incident regarding a student, faculty, or staff member, please fill out the new Bias, Discrimination & Sexual Misconduct Incident Form. For incidents where you prefer to place an anonymous report, you are encouraged to submit reports through EthicsPoint. Submitting an incident report allows the Institute to investigate and take appropriate actions to address your concerns.
If you have any questions about filing or completing an incident report, please contact Jazmin Peralta, Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, or Judith-Faith Williams Cadet, Title IX Coordinator, by emailing email@example.com.
