Walnut Hill School for the Arts

Bias Incident Reporting

Walnut Hill believes that every member of our community should be able to study, work, and live in an environment where they feel safe and respected. In our ongoing commitment to be an anti-racist institution, Walnut Hill has created a system for gathering reports of bias incidents that impact the well-being of members of our community.

If you have observed or experienced any incident of bias, hate, or microaggression, you have multiple reporting options:

  1. You may report an incident in person to the Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the Director of Human Resources, the Assistant Head of School, or any trusted adult on campus (e.g. advisor, faculty/staff, dorm parent).
  2. You may report the incident using this form.
  3. You may submit a narrative report via

Additionally, if you feel comfortable, you are encouraged to address any incidents directly with the individual involved.

Walnut Hill will conduct an investigation of all reports in such a way as to maintain the privacy of the individuals involved to the extent possible. We are always sensitive to the need for the privacy of reporters and those who feel they have experienced harm. Walnut Hill recognizes that knowingly submitting false accusations or exaggerations may have serious effects on innocent persons and will not be tolerated. Retaliation against any individual who submits a complaint, or who cooperates in an investigation, in good faith, is strictly prohibited.

If you or someone you know has been impacted by a bias incident, please report using the online form. Email questions to If an emergency has occurred, please call 911.
