REPORT: Bias Response Teams oversaw nearly 3M students in 2016

REPORT: Bias Response Teams oversaw nearly 3M students in 2016 | 09 Feb 2017 | The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) has released a report examining the proliferation of "Bias Response Teams" and the chilling effect they have on campus speech. FIRE surveyed 232 Bias Response Teams, defined as groups that formally collect reports from the university community regarding "offensive” speech, and found that at least 2.84 million students had their speech subjected to review by the teams in 2016 alone..."Some systems define 'bias incidents' to include expressions of bias against political and social affiliations, [and] 15 percent of institutions include 'political affiliation' among their categories of bias," FIRE remarks. "Still others include bias against similar categories such as 'intellectual perspective' (University of Central Arkansas), 'political expression' (Dartmouth), or 'political belief' (University of Kentucky)."
