Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)

Lee College Behavioral Intervention Team: Creating a Community of Care

Overview

The BIT is dedicated to a proactive, coordinated, and planned approach to the identification, prevention, assessment, management, and reduction of interpersonal and behavioral threats to the safety and well-being of Lee College community. The team meets regularly to review referrals brought forward by faculty, staff, and students regarding behaviors of students that can be concerning, disruptive, or threatening — behaviors that potentially impede their own or others ability to function successfully or safely.

It is the responsibility of the campus community to immediately report any situation that could possibly bring on harm to anyone at the college.

Behavioral Intervention Team

The BIT provides support and consultation to the campus community in assisting students who display concerning or disruptive behaviors. Membership includes representation from Student Affairs, Disability Services, Advising/Counseling Services, Veteran Services, Security, and Faculty. Additional members from the campus community are included in meetings as necessary.

Using a case management approach, the BIT reviews each situation, gathers information, makes an assessment, and recommends appropriate intervention strategies which may include connecting the student with campus and/or community resources or referral to a disciplinary action. There is also ongoing monitoring of students who have displayed disruptive or concerning behavior.

How to Report a Concern

It is the responsibility of individuals within the campus community to immediately report any concerning behaviors. Each report will be reviewed for appropriate action. There are two ways an individual can be referred to the BIT.

  • Complete the Online Report (Convercent)
    • Convercent is a confidential, anonymous incident reporting system for Lee College students, faculty, and staff. While it is not part of the college, it notifies appropriate personnel while allowing the person reporting to remain anonymous if he or she chooses.
  • Make a report directly with one of the Core Team members
