The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is a campus resource established to act as a multidisciplinary, central network to receive, collect, assess, and when it deems appropriate, act upon information on behavior of concern exhibited by a student or group of students.

Examples of such instances include but are not limited to:

  • Dangerous or threatening behavior to oneself or others
  • Angry, hostile, abusive troubling behavior
  • Other inappropriate or disruptive behavior
