Relevant Excerpt

What can I share or report to the Bias Response Line (BRL)?

You can share or report instances of bias, discrimination, and/or harassment perpetrated against members of the University community. Those instances do not need to specifically relate to one of NYU’s existing policies, such as the University’s Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policies and Complaint Procedures for Employees and for Students, or the University’s Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence, and Stalking Policy.

Can the Bias Response Line (BRL) take remedial action?

No. The BRL intakes and tracks concerns and reports brought to its attention, and where appropriate refers the matter to the applicable office/unit for further assessment. The applicable office/unit may be other members of the OEO or elsewhere in the University.

Please take note, however, that the office/unit to which the BRL refers a given matter may take remedial action in accordance with University policy.
