Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)


Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)

The Behavioral Intervention Team serves as the centralized coordinated body for discussion and action regarding students exhibiting behavior that indicate distress, cause a disturbance in the college community, and/or present a danger to oneself or others. Committed to proactive, early intervention, the BIT supports students directly and through consultation with campus partners. When necessary, the BIT also assesses risk of harm to the college community and coordinates appropriate action to promote the safety of individual students and the college at large.
