Behavioral Intervention Team FAQs

What is the Behavioral Intervention Team?

The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is a multidisciplinary team of professionals that reviews and responds to reports of student behaviors that pose, or appear to pose, a threat to the safety and well-being of the college community.

Who can report concerns to the BIT?

Anyone can report behaviors of concern – and it is everyone's responsibility to do so. You can submit a Behavior of Concern form. Failure to provide adequate information may result in the incident not being investigated.

What happens after a concern is reported?

The BIT evaluates the report, assesses the situation and determines an appropriate response.

How will I know if the BIT addressed the concern I reported?

Every concern is addressed by the BIT. However, because confidential information is often involved in handling concerns, you may not be informed about the response to your report.

What happens to students in the BIT process?

The BIT offers students support and resources in a respectful and confidential manner.

How do I decide if a behavior warrants a BIT report or should be addressed in some other way?

You do not have to make that decision – simply report your concern. The BIT will assess the situation and respond appropriately. If in doubt, submit a submit a report to the BIT.

What if I have a concern about the behavior of a college employee?

Concerns about employees can be reported to a supervising dean or to Wake Tech's Human Resources Department. The BIT report form is for reporting concerns about student behavior only.
