What is the BRT?

The core purpose of the Bias Response Team is to ensure a just campus.  We do this by offering a process and space for targets of bias to have their voices heard, by promoting civility and respect, effecting change around these important issues in a responsive manner, and to ensure a comprehensive response to bias incidents.

While the BRT does not adjudicate student conduct code violations, affirmative action issues, or issues of state or federal law we can help individuals connect to resources in each of these areas for appropriate resolution.  The BRT also collects and publishes information about bias incidents and to support those who have witnessed, or themselves become a target, of an act of bias. With the gathered information, through “For Action” reports and “For Information” reports is used to help the BRT keep track of campus climate.

The BRT provides educational programming and campus presentations and strives to ensure the evaluation of policies and procedures. If you are interested in having a program or presentation, please contact us.
