U Matter, We Care | Team


The purpose of the Bias Education and Response Team (BERT) is to provide impacted parties of bias incidents opportunities to be heard and supported; understand and respond to situations that effect the University of Florida; educate and inform the community; and create awareness of ignorance and intolerance. The BERT provides services to witness(es), bystander(s), targeted individual(s), offender(s), or a member(s) of the community. It is not the purpose of the Bias Education and Response Team to investigate, adjudicate, or to take the place of other University of Florida processes or services; rather, the aim is to complement and work with campus entities to connect impacted parties and communities with appropriate support and resources.
