Relevant Excerpt

Students impacted by bias can seek support through the Bias Education and Support Team (BEST) ... 


BEST will assist students in determining whether a violation of law or University policy occurred, and will refer students to additional resources. However, BEST cannot initiate disciplinary action or impose sanctions.


The role of BEST is supportive and administrative. BEST members ensure student(s) who report their experiences of bias are heard throughout the process and understand available options. BEST does not serve as an investigative or displinary [sic] body.
