The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is committed to providing students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors an environment that is safe, as well as civil, and one that encourages the exchange of ideas through discourse in every aspect of campus life. All members of the campus community are encouraged to report bias-motivated incidents.
The Office of the Dean of Students addresses bias incidents through the university’s Bias Education & Referral Team (BERT).
The purpose of BERT is to:
- manage the timely and appropriate response to bias incidents
- implement a plan of action and coordinate referrals to address the bias incident
- conduct appropriate follow-up to bias incidents
