Two Carleton College professors are uneasy about the “bias incident reporting” trend, saying it is “fundamentally at odds with the mission of higher education” to discourage open dialogue.

Jeffrey Aaron Snyder and Amna Khalid, both assistant professors at Carleton with history-related specialties, observe in an op-ed for The New Republic Wednesday that while more than 100 colleges and universities have established Bias Response Teams (BRTs) in an effort to promote civility and inclusion, the concept “[has] yet to face any real scrutiny.”
