Behavioral Intervention Team

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

Metropolitan State is concerned about the safety, health, and well-being of all students, faculty, and staff.

Addressing concerning student behavior

Students, staff, faculty, and parents are encouraged to contact the BIT if they have strong concerns about the behavior or actions of a Metropolitan State University Student. If you think a student might cause harm to self or others, we welcome you to share your concerns by making a referral. Your referral will be reviewed by members of the BIT.

Concerned about a student or friend? Make a referral.
