A Message from President Laura L. Douglas, Ph.D.

Recent events serve as a reminder that racism, hate, and violence are never acceptable in our community.Stop Racism, Hate and Violence

Bristol remains resolutely committed to maintaining a culture that is inclusive, respectful, and safe for everyone. Regrettably, reports indicate that people of Asian descent have been subject to heightened discrimination since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes verbal harassment, physical assault, civil rights violations, and more.

Similarly, there is growing evidence that violence against women and intimate partners has also grown more common throughout the pandemic. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in four women are victims of intimate partner violence.

At Bristol Community College we are committed to fostering a college culture that is inclusive, respectful, and safe for everyone. We denounce racism, hate, and violence, which are contrary to the policies and core values of the college. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you of our policy prohibiting discrimination.

Any member of the Bristol community who believes they have been subject to discrimination based on race, sex, national origin, or any other protected category should submit a complaint by clicking this link.

Inquiries or complaints can also be made by email correspondence to diversitytitleix@bristolcc.edu. All complaints will be reviewed promptly.
