Bias Report and Support System (BRSS) An Important Resource for Students to Report Incidents of Discrimination
During times of political volatility in the past some students have experienced negative reactions or bias incidents. WashU’s Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) defines a bias incident as “any discriminatory or hurtful act that appears to be or is perceived by the victim to be motivated by race, ethnicity, age, religion, national origin, sex, disability, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, veteran status or socioeconomic status.”
If you or anyone you know has experienced a bias incident, be aware that the CDI has a Bias Report & Support System in place where students can report instances of bias or discrimination that are perceived to be motivated by their identity. Reporting of such incidents can be done in a variety of ways, including through an online form (with the option of remaining anonymous) and in person at the Center for Diversity and Inclusion in Olin Library, Suite 202.
