What is the BRT?


The 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. If you are interested in having a program or presentation, please contact us at
