Campus & Student Life: Bias Education & Support Team (BEST)

Relevant excerpt

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

Although BEST can assist students in determining whether a violation of law or University policy may have occurred, and may refer students to additional resources should such a violation be likely, BEST cannot initiate disciplinary action or impose sanctions.

A bias incident involves actions committed against or directed toward a person or property that are motivated, in whole or in part, by a bias against race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national or ethnic origin, age, status as an individual with a disability, protected veteran status, genetic information, or other protected classes as required by law and that interferes with one’s educational opportunities or disrupts the learning environment.
