GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - The University of Northern Colorado is one of a growing number of colleges that have created a bias response team to handle complaints and mediate discussions.

The Greeley Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1T7epD5) that the team dealt with 44 complaints during the 2014-15 school year. Last month, it launched a poster campaign using the national hashtag #LanguageMatters. They tell students not to say “gay” if they mean “bad” and not to call someone a terrorist based on the clothes they wear, among other things.

UNC describes bias as any verbal, nonverbal or written behavior toward an individual or group based upon actual or perceived identity characteristics including, but not limited to: race, religion, faith or spirituality, national origin, sexual orientation, ethnicity and gender.
