Complaints are continuing to pile up after the University of Northern Colorado created a Bias Response Team to deal with behavior deemed to be offensive.

The Greeley Tribune reports a review of allegations that sparked complaints range from in-class assignments to students' strongly stated political opinions.

The complaints even included cooking competitions that caused problems for students with eating disorders.

First Amendment supporters say they have concerns about investigations, and they say the regulations could have a chilling effect on education.

Some areas that are regulated include issues involving race, religion, national origin and sexual orientation
