The Bias Response Team (BRT), which consists of faculty, administrators, and students, offers an informal way for members of the LVC community who experience or observe instances of harassment or intimidation to talk confidentially with an objective but sympathetic listener about the character and seriousness of what they have seen or heard and consider an appropriate response.
The BRT is not a substitute for existing structures and procedures at the College that deal with allegations of harassment or intimidation, but a kind of "hot line" to which people can turn for immediate counsel and assistance in considering the character and gravity of instances of harassment or other acts of bias based on race, national or ethnic origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, or disability.
The Team functions as a non-bureaucratic, agile, and readily accessible forum, reporting directly to the President of the College.
