BART: Bias Assessment and Response Team

"BART is a resource for anyone who needs to report an incident of bias or wants to explore and better understand issues like bias and discrimination, and how to effectively respond.

Reporting allows us to best assist those in need, track patterns of bias and create educational interventions to help improve our campus' climate.

Our website is designed as a central, online clearinghouse for you to report an incident. Likewise, it has many links to campus and community resources, to better equip you with getting help after a bias incident.

We know that in order to create change, we must be aware of what is occurring on campus and be transparent about it. Whatever your reason for visiting this site, we hope that you leave with the understanding that we are a resource and strive to ensure that The Ohio State University is a diverse and welcoming community for all.

What is the Purpose of BART?

BART receives, monitors, refers, and as necessary, coordinates university responses to hate and bias-related incidents that impact all or a significant portion of the university community. Incidents may involve bias or hate as a result of age, ancestry, color, disability, gender identity or expression, genetic information, HIV/AIDS status, military status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or veteran status.

BART is not intended to replace or subordinate any existing processes for reporting and addressing acts of discrimination, harassment, or violence, including but not limited to, processes of the Office of Human Resources, OSU Police, and Office of Student Conduct."
