Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)

Mission and Purpose

The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is committed to the mission of the college and our mission to promote the safety and wellbeing of our students, faculty and staff by reviewing, assessing and responding to reports of concerning behaviors to determine the best methods of offering support and intervention to members of the community in need.

Goal

The goal of the BIT is to offer support for individuals experiencing a broad range of concerns and to assess and intervene in disruptive behaviors before they pose a threat to the individual and/or College community.

BIT Members

Report

There are three ways report an incident or concern:

What happens when I submit a report?

The BIT serves as Roane State’s central point of contact for reports of concerning behavior, but is not a punitive or disciplinary board. The focus is on behaviors of concern and determining possible resolutions. BIT assessments do not replace or supersede any state or federal laws regarding public safety and law enforcement. The National Behavioral Intervention Team Association’s (NaBITA’s) Threat Assessment Tool is utilized to determine risk to the College community. Through this assessment, the BIT Team will collect and investigate reports, review data, and determine next steps, including referrals to College or community resources.
