Process Guidelines

Each behavioral incident or concern reported to the BIT will be different; however, the process by which the reports are investigated will generally remain the same. The following is a general guide of how the BIT process will work:


A BIT Referral Report is received by BIT or one of its team members.


A BIT team meeting is called within two (2) business days. At the meeting, the team:

  • Reviews the Threat Assessment and Intervention Tools to determine a generalized risk level
  • Determines if the behavior should be handled at the BIT level or referred to a disciplinary process
  • Identifies who will contact and work with the student


An investigation is initiated by contacting the student who was reported, as well as faculty and students who filed the report on or interacted with the reported student. Other resources are consulted to determine whether there is a pattern to the reported behavior.


BIT team members process all information received through the investigation and develop their recommendations. Recommendations are discussed with the student who was reported, and the student’s follow-through on completing the BIT recommendations is tracked.

Report to Team

A report is made to BIT team members via email, unless another face-to-face meeting is needed to discuss concerns raised after meeting with the reported student.

Follow Up with Staff

The BIT team follows up with the person or persons who reported the incident to let them know action was taken.

Data Recording

Information on the incident reported is recorded for future reference and tracking.
