Assistant Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students

Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)

The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is designed to assist faculty, staff and students in dealing effectively with situations involving student behaviors of concern.  These may involve students struggling with various forms of individual distress, engaging in behaviors disruptive to the educational environment, or even posing a potential threat of harm to themselves or others.  A main purpose of the BIT is to educate members of the College community to identify and respond to students of concern with a focus on caring, prevention and early intervention.  A related aim is to foster interdepartmental communication about struggling students while providing information coordination, consultation and feedback, assessment of needs and at-risk behaviors, and intervention and support strategies as warranted.
