Behavioral Intervention Team

With students facing high levels of stress in their lives, faculty and staff may encounter students whose behaviors are concerning, disruptive, or threatening towards themselves or others. In an effort to respond to the safety needs of the campus, the University Of Utah Asia Campus has established the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT). 

What does BIT Do?

BIT’s primary function is to help keep the university community safe and connect distressed students to support services. BIT seeks to act preventively versus reactionary to students in distress. In doing this, BIT:

  • Gathers and manages reported information from concerned faculty and staff
  • Assesses the level of threat a student’s behavior poses
  • Intervenes with students and connects them to support services
  • Provides faculty and staff with support and intervention resources
  • Makes referrals to the Dean of Students
  • Disseminates relevant information to Campus Police

Who Is On The Team?

BIT is housed in the Office of the Dean of Students and consists of a team of professionals from several university units.

Other members of the Behavioral Intervention Team Include:

University Police Department
University Counseling Center
Housing & Residential Education
Center for Disability & Access
Internation Student & Scholar Services
Office of General Counsel
Center for Student Wellness
Office of Equal Opportunity
Faculty Partners
