BERT – Bias Education and Response Team

Category: Policies on Bias and Hate Speech School: Auburn University Statement Rating: Green Last updated: January 4, 2018

Relevant excerpt

BERT may respond to a bias incident report in a variety of ways, depending on the nature of the incident and the needs of those impacted. Response may include connecting those impacted with resources and support, working with university stakeholders to facilitate transparent and open communication, supporting opportunities for dialogue and restorative justice, or referring information to other offices to determine if policies were violated.

BERT will not investigate, adjudicate or take the place of other Auburn University processes or services; rather, the aim is to complement and work with campus entities to connect impacted parties and communities with appropriate support and resources.
