Behavior Intervention Team

Home

The Behavior Intervention Team (BIT) is a multi-disciplinary group whose purpose is to support CSC students with behavioral and/or mental health issues. The BIT is also charged with upholding institutional policies and maintaining a healthy and safe environment for our college community. BIT is not meant to take the place of standard classroom management techniques used by faculty. Nor does the implementation of this team alter any existing discipline policies. Rather, BIT centralizes the reporting of worrisome student behavior, publicizes current policy and strives to facilitate early intervention.

After weekly review of student reports and referrals, Behavior Intervention Team members consider possible actions to support and encourage students. Actions may include meeting with a student, referring students to CSC and community resources, and imposing disciplinary sanctions in cases of policy violations. These and other steps are taken in an effort to aid student’s personal and academic success as well as ensure campus security and CSC policies.
