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).
How the Process Works
Yes. It is important to respond to any outreach by a University of Utah official. Failure to do so in a timely fashion may result in additional actions being taken to ensure that the student is safe and a referral to Student Conduct.
Yes. The BCT understands that we may not have all of the correct information. Students have the right to share their perspective, and this will be taken into consideration when determining an appropriate course of action.
A student’s privacy is valued; however, some information is disclosed to the BIT, which is comprised of team made up of high-level administrators. BIT leadership, including the Case Manager and Assistant Dean of Students for Behavioral Intervention, will handle most of the information.
