Bias Education Response Taskforce

The Bias Education Response Taskforce (BERT) 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, sexual orientation, disability, religion and national origin. It is committed to consistent and timely response. The Bias Education Response Taskforce of Montclair State University serves to prevent and respond to bias incidents on campus while coordinating outreach in the event of a bias incident and hate crime.
