This log is a summary of reported incidents to the campus Bias Response Team (BRT). Incidents reported to the BRT also may have been reported to law enforcement agencies or other university units. While documenting referrals made to other offices or agencies, this log does not track the outcome of work performed outside the purview of the BRT.   

Incidents summarized on this log are situations where reported harm has been caused in the campus community and may, in some cases, include legally protected speech. The BRT responds with support to harmed parties, makes referrals to resources as appropriate and engages in proactive and responsive education with involved parties who agree to participate.   

This data is reported in a general manner designed to protect the privacy of individuals involved.  In some cases, limited information is reported to the BRT and if a report was made anonymously, supportive or responsive follow up actions may be limited.

Multiple reports of the same incident are reported as a single incident for the purposes of this log. If the date of an incident reported was unknown or unspecified, the date the report was made to the BRT is used as the date of incident.
