REPORTING INCIDENTS OF PREJUDICE OR BIAS
If you are experiencing the negative impacts of prejudice or bias in your classes, we encourage you to file a confidential report. The University of Illinois Bias Assessment & Response Team (BART) addresses reports about acts motivated by bias and prejudice. BART handles reports confidentially, and can help you to navigate campus resources. They follow the reporter's wishes for action on reports as much as possible. BART primarily focuses on educating or mediating, however they can connect you to campus and community resources that can help for more severe instances. They can also receive reports on behalf of someone else, or anonymous reports, and are not limited to on campus or in-class incidents.
