Vassar College Bias Incident Response Team

The Bias Incident Response Team (BIRT) convenes to ensure that affected student(s) and others have access to appropriate support and to assist the College in a coordinated campus response to bias-related incidents and situations that may impact campus climate. The primary functions of BIRT are to respond, support and communicate to the campus when warranted. While a core team meets immediately after an incident report, the broader BIRT resource team meets at least once a month to discuss trends, campus impacts, and may suggest other campus responses.
