Bias Incident Response Team & Incident Reporting
Bias Incident Response Team (BIRT)
How do we help?
- Support students as they navigate the reporting process
- Recommend strategies for reconciliation between parties
- Document and monitor incidents in order to prevent habitual or systemic occurrences.
The BIRT is comprised of representatives from the College of Chiropractic, College of Graduate and Undergraduate Studies, the University clinic system, the Office of the Dean of Students and the University Executive Office.
