The College Fix investigates: bias response teams

At the beginning of 2019, The College Fix undertook a project to investigate campus “bias response teams,” which allow both students and professors to anonymously report one another to campus administrators to police a university’s “climate.” The Fix’s ongoing project has determined what exactly has been reported and whether such “bias” systems are an infringement on the free speech rights of campus residents.

The following is a cumulative list of the schools that have been investigated by The Fix.
