Rise of So-Called ‘Bias Response Teams’ Leads to Criticism

Reporting biases are quelling free speech, and students are becoming increasingly unhappy.

In the past year, American colleges and universities have experienced a proliferation of “bias response teams,” outlets for student complaints about unfair bias on campus.

Student “victims,” who previously have had to draw attention to their predicaments through their Deans or professors, now have the power to report incidents of hate or bias directly to the administration.

As students come forward to voice their outrage over incidents that occur on college campuses, more universities are adding response teams, sometimes called hate or anti-bias units, to help curb this rise of student complaints.
