The College works with all faculty, staff, administrators and students to provide a safe environment for living, learning and working. While we adhere to and support the principles of academic freedom, each member of the North Central College community also shares in a common responsibility to maintain an environment free from bias, discrimination and hate.
Therefore, we've established the Bias Incident Reporting Form. Reporting bias-related incidents allows us to assist those in need, track patterns of bias and improve our campus climate.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs expands your cultural boundaries throughout the year with events and programs including:

The Cardinal Safe Zone program
