What does BIRT do when it receives information about a bias incident?

University of Wisconsin-Superior has a Bias Incident Response Protocol to guide its response to bias and hate incidents. When the Bias Response Team receives a bias incident report, it coordinates with university partners to provide care and support to community members who may be negatively affected, and engages in a collaborative, restorative process to educate community members about the harmful impact of bias incidents. This process is represented in the chart below:
