We're here to help.
The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is a team of trained staff who monitor student behavior, develop appropriate intervention plans and coordinate services for students.
The purpose of BIT is to provide a safe environment for our campus community through collaboration, information collection, risk assessment and intervention. BIT provides a proactive and team approach to enhance students’ physical and emotional safety. BIT does not take the place of standard classroom management techniques used by faculty.

How to Report to the BIT:

By working together and taking action, we can prevent incidents from happening. We can do this by doing something when we see something. If you're unsure of whether or not you should do something, still do it. Remember, if you think something is wrong, but you're not certain, it's always best to report it anyway.
If you have questions or concerns about which report to use, please contact Nina Wiley, Dean of Student Engagement and Support Services in the Sara T. Landess Technology and Learning Center, Room 115 or call 937.328.7936.
