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 behaviors exhibited 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.
