Behavioral Intervention Team
The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) responds to non-emergency, non-imminent concerns. This team serves as the centralized body for discussion and coordinated action regarding students who experience distress or display concerning, problematic, or troubling behavior that could pose a serious risk to themselves or others. The goal is to intervene before a student reaches a crisis level and ensures the safety of both the student and the LBCC community.
