The University has established the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) to respond to concerns of faculty, staff and the larger university community when the behaviors of students are concerning, disruptive or threatening towards themselves or others. BIT is housed in the Office of the Dean of Students (Union 270) and consists of a team of professionals from several university units including: Campus Police, University Counseling Center, Residential Education, Center for Disability Services, International Center, Legal Counsel and Faculty members. The mandate of BIT is to act preventively to keep the university community safe and connect distressed students to available support services.
- If you or others are in immediate danger, call 9-911 from a campus phone or 911 from your mobile phone.
- If the behavior isn’t immediately threatening, talk to the student and express your concern for their well-being.
- Refer the student to the UCC or offer to walk them over here. A crisis counselor is available M-F 8-5.
- Consult with the Dean of Student’s Office: 801-581-7066. The BIT Specialist can help you get the student connected to support services.
