Behavioral Intervention Team

Mission Statement

The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) team is a campus-wide team of appointed staff and faculty responsible for identifying, assessing, and responding to concerns and/or disruptive behaviors by students who struggle academically, emotionally, or psychologically, or who present a risk to the health or safety of the College or its members.

The BIT teams will serve as a resource to faculty, staff, administration, and students providing assistance with intervention plans, resources, training, and education. The team works to cultivate relationships with administrators, faculty, staff, and sets a tone of caring, and acts in an advisory and coordinating role when a response to a student situation is needed. The BIT meets weekly to discuss non-emergency situations and routine incidents. When a report is deemed urgent, the team, or subset of the team, can be assembled quickly in order to coordinate a response.

Team Goals:

  • Prevent crises before they occur through the provision of outreach and educational programming, consultation, appropriate assessment, and referral
  • Provide a safe and supportive physical and emotional environment for members of the College community
  • Identify, assess, and intervene with individuals who are struggling or who demonstrate concerning or threatening behavior

Members of the College may refer students of concern to the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) by submitting a Make a Report form.
