Bias Reporting: What is Bias?

Relevant excerpt

What is a bias-related incident?

A bias incident is action taken that one could reasonably and prudently conclude is motivated, in whole or in part, by the alleged offender’s bias against an actual or perceived aspect of diversity, including, but not limited to, age, ancestry or ethnicity, color, creed, disability, gender, gender identity or expression, height, immigration or citizenship status, marital status, national origin, race, religion, religious practice, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or weight.

It is important to note that the Bias Assessment and Review Team (BART) is neither an investigative nor a disciplinary body. Actions will generally be educational in nature and can include conflict coaching or mediation dependent upon the reporters decision regarding anonymity.
