UTSA Behavioral Concerns Assistance

The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is a multi-disciplinary team of appointed UTSA staff and faculty who are responsible for identifying, assessing, and responding to concerns and/or disruptive behaviorexhibited by students, faculty, staff, and visitors who may present a risk of harm to themselves, members of the community, or the institution. The BIT consists of University personnel with expertise in human resources/employee assistance, law enforcement/threat assessment/policies, mental health knowledge, legal affairs, and student affairs. 

There may be times when concerns about behavior arise.  Examples of such concerns include but are not limited to:

  • Written material containing alarming wording or out of context wording
  • Statements that indicate the threat of harm to self or others
  • Disregard for personal boundaries
  • A significant change in behavior

The BIT reviews all submitted reports and determines appropriate interventions.  Reports can be anonymous. 

WHEN IN DOUBT, submit a BIT report.
