Presenters: Nina Pereira, Director, Residential Education, & Whitney Mohr, Investigator, Civil Rights, Office of Institutional Equity  

This workshop will provide attendees with an overview of BEST, the Bias Education & Support Team. Attendees will have the opportunity to work through a BEST developed case study looking at bias on campus and learn more about University Resources. Participants will also be given the chance to ask questions of BEST committee members. BEST was formed in Summer 2020 in response to the University’s commitment to a campus of inclusivity for students, staff, faculty, and visitors. The team, made up of stakeholders from across campus, works to educate and support members of the campus community who find themselves impacted by bias.
