Bias Response Taskforce

The Bias Response Taskforce (BRT) works within the division of Student Development and Campus Life (SDCL) to provide a well coordinated and comprehensive response to incidents of intolerance and bias with respect to race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, religion, and national origin. It is committed to consistent and timely response.
