MISSION: The University of Wisconsin Stevens Point’s Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) mission is to provide a safe environment for the university community through coordination, collaboration, information collection, risk assessment, and intervention.
PURPOSE: A Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is a multi-disciplinary group who meets regularly and by using an established protocol, detect patterns and trends of concerning behavior for individuals or groups within the campus community. The team receives reports of disruptive, problematic or concerning behavior or misconduct (from students, faculty/staff, co-workers, community members, friends, colleagues, etc.), conducts an investigation, performs an assessment, and determines the best mechanism for support, intervention, warning/notification and response. The team then deploys campus and/or community resources and coordinates follow-up.
