In addition to the Care Team, The College has established the Behavioral Assessment and Response Team (“BART”) whose duties include assisting in evaluating whether students meet the criteria for involuntary health or safety withdrawal. BART includes representatives from the Office of the Dean of Students, Health Services, Counseling and Psychological Services, Residential Education and Housing, Campus Police, and Academic Affairs. Other members may be added at the discretion of the Vice President for Student Affairs. The members of BART selected to review a particular case will depend upon the specific circumstances; however, an appropriate health professional and representatives of the Office of the Dean of Students and the Office of Academic Affairs must participate in any review.
The Behavior Assessment and Response Team is committed to improving community safety through a proactive, collaborative, coordinated, objective, and thoughtful approach to the prevention, identification, assessment, intervention, and management of situations that pose, or may reasonably pose, a threat to the safety and well-being of the campus community.
