Behavior Intervention Team

In addition to the CARE Team, the College has established the Behavior Intervention Team (BIT) which seeks to identify early indicators of escalating or concerning behaviors and whose duties involve gathering data from individuals and the community; analyzing said data using objective tools and assessments; and intervening and following up based on the level of risk resulting from the assessment process.


BIT is a campus wide team consisting of faculty and staff responsible for identifying, assessing, and responding to concerns and/or disruptive behaviors by students and community members (not faculty or staff) who struggle academically, emotionally, or psychologically; or those who present a risk to the health or safety of the College or its members.
