Behavioral Intervention Team

What is BIT

The Behavioral Intervention Team, known as the BIT Team, is a group of staff members from various departments across campus who meet regularly to assist students experiencing difficulty and to help ensure the safety of our campus.

The mission of The W’s Behavior Intervention Team (BIT) is to promote student, faculty and staff success and campus safety by identifying individuals who demonstrate behaviors that may be early warning signs of possible disruptive or violent behavior and intervene at the earliest possible point.

The BIT team’s goal is to successfully engage, support, and minimize the concerns associated with students in distress. Accomplishing these goals requires a coordinated institutional response that includes all members of The W community.



If a person is an immediate threat to themselves or someone else or is incapable of caring for themselves,
CALL 911.
