Reportable Behaviors

In general, the following behaviors are those that may warrant a report to the Behavioral Intervention Team

  • Self-injurious behavior (Suicidal ideation/attempt, cutting behavior, dangerous alcohol/substance abuse consumption, etc.)
  • Disruptive behavior that violates campus community safety (homicidal threats, stalking, assault, cyber bullying, carrying weapons, etc.)
  • Unusual behavior (changes in personality, depressive symptoms, shifts in mood, unexplained irritability and/or lethargy, hopelessness, etc.)

A list of possible types of behaviors or actions that should be reported can be found below. Reporters are expected to use their judgment as to what is reportable, erring on the side of over-reporting if in doubt. For example, if an incident may seem minor, but other similar incidents occur in proximity, they may indicate a pattern not visible to the witness of a single incident.
