University of Oregon Bias Response Team (BRT), based out of
the Office of Student Life, works to gather information about
bias incidents and to support those who unfortunately have
witnessed, or themselves become a target, of an act of bias.
The fundamental role of the Bias Response Team (BRT) is to
provide targets of bias a safe space to have their voices
heard, to promote civility and respect, to effect change around
these important issues in a quick and effective manner, and
to ensure a comprehensive response to bias incidents. The
BRT also functions to ensure the evaluation of policies and
procedures. The Bias Response Team does not adjudicate student
conduct code violations, affirmative action issues, or issues
of state or federal law. The BRT can help individuals connect
to resources in each of these areas for appropriate resolution.
The BRT is comprised of three functional groups, which includes
the Bias Response Council and two sub groups performing case
management and administrative work and advocacy.
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 also
provides educational programming and campus presentations.
