The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) exists as a proactive, multi-disciplinary program in support of the safety, health, and well-being of all students, faculty, and staff. Its goal is to provide a structured positive method for addressing student behaviors that may adversely impact the college community, the mission of the College, and may involve mental health and/or safety issues. The BIT consists of a group of qualified college professionals who are likely to become involved with and/or receive information pertaining to a student of concern.
The BIT provides a means by which members of the college community may report concerns related to the above. The BIT may then assess the risk associated with these concerns and, in cooperation with other appropriate college teams or offices, formulate an appropriate response when an individual’s behavior and/or statements generate concern that he/she may present a threat to the health or safety of self or others.
Reasons for submitting a concern to the BIT include, but are not limited to the following:
