SFCC Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)

The SFCC Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is a multi-disciplinary team of college administrators, faculty, counselors and campus safety personnel who serve as a behavioral assessment group when a student’s behavior has been so peculiar, problematic, distracting or disruptive that it calls for reporting. The BIT team will be responsible for implementing a proactive student behavioral intervention process that uses formalized protocols to both assess behavior that poses a potential threat to campus safety/security and coordinate resources for early intervention and support for involved students.

The BIT is the clearinghouse for tracking and responding to behavioral issues that are reported on campus. Team members will gather information about the behavior of concern from appropriate administrators, faculty, staff and students. They then will analyze and assess the situation and make caring, proactive recommendations about the best ways to help the individual or individuals through support, intervention or referral. Team members will also coordinate follow-up when appropriate.


The goals of the BIT are:
  • To be a resource to SFCC faculty, staff, students and administrators for addressing student behavioral issues
  • To intervene when necessary in order to reduce the chances of problematic behavior escalating into serious situations
  • To gather information campus-wide and provide a central location where behavioral issues and concerns can be collected and analyzed
  • To create a networking system that responds to and is supportive of behaviorally at-risk students
