Bias Response & Intervention 

What is the Bias Response & Intervention Team? 

The Bias Response & Intervention Team (BRIT) serves as a safe and confidential resource for members of the Moravian community to raise immediate concerns regarding specific incidents of bias or acts of harassment and discrimination that impact them and the Moravian College community.

The Bias Response & Intervention Team was established to respond to actions and behaviors that negatively impact members of the College community with resources, support, and action. Moravian College values open expression and debate in the context of civility and mutual respect for diverse individuals and communities; bias incidents directly impact our ability to know, trust, support, and learn from one another.

What is a Bias incident?

A bias incident is an act of bigotry, harassment or intimidation committed by a member of the Moravian College community against another member of the Moravian College community based on actual or perceived race, color, sex, religion, ancestry, genetic information, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, familial status, marital status, age, veteran status, mental or physical disability, use of guide or support animals and/or mechanical aids, or any other basis protected by applicable federal, state, or local laws. This includes, but is not limited to, slurs, graffiti, written messages, or images that harass or intimidate individuals or groups because of their membership in the above listed protected classes.
