Climate Response Team

The Climate Response Team (CRT) offers a process for UNI community members to report bias/climate related experiences. We engage those impacted and involved through support, empowerment, and education.

The core functions of the Climate Response Team (CRT) include:

  • Gathering information and listening to those involved in a bias/climate related experience
  • Supporting individuals involved in a bias/climate related experience
  • Engaging in providing appropriate and effective education
  • Identifying and connecting with appropriate support services
  • Coordinating, when appropriate, activities with other campus wide entities
  • Reporting trends and making recommendations

What is a Hate/Bias Incident?
Any physically or verbally harmful act that is motivated by (or appears to be motivated by, in whole or in part) any of the following factors: race, religion, ethnic background, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or disability.

Anyone who has experienced, witnessed, or learned of a hate/bias incident should consider reporting this to the Climate Response Team
