BIT performs student intervention only. Situations regarding faculty, staff, campus guests, etc. are referred to appropriate administrative areas (i.e., Human Resources, Provost, SEAP, etc.).
The BIT will meet regularly for non-emergency meetings on Tuesdays at 8:00 a.m. in 302 Old Main. This meeting may be cancelled if no agenda exists, however, must remain on each team member’s schedule. Should an issue arise between meetings, team members will be called together to review emerging circumstances of potential concern. In these circumstances, the team meeting and duties become the priority over all other university business.
