Behavioral Intervention Team (B.I.T.)

Resources exist to help students adjust to college life and its stressors. Even so, students may find themselves at risk, without knowing help is available. UW-River Falls addresses at-risk student issues through the Behavioral Intervention Team (B.I.T.)

The B.I.T team is a team comprised of campus professionals focused on early detection and intervention for students who have exhibited behaviors that may constitute a risk to their personal safety or the personal safety of others. The team receives and reviews reports for the purpose of aiding the student involved, mitigating risk, and promoting well-being and success within our existing University policies.

Mission:

 

The Behavioral Intervention Team is dedicated to the identification, evaluation of, and response to students of the UWRF community whose behavior has risen concern indicating the potential for harm toward one's self or others.

The team's purpose is to perform an initial assessment of risk and develop a care plan, within existing University policy, to mitigate risk and promote student well-being and success.


Team Responsibilities:

  • Receive, review, and maintain a record of information regarding student behavior that is potentially harmful to the person's safety or the safety of others.
  • Perform an initial assessment of risk and if necessary develop a care plan, within existing University policy, to mitigate risk and promote student success.
  • Provide follow-up and additional assessment as needed.
  • Connect students with appropriate campus and community resources.
  • Educate the UWRF community about the Behavioral Intervention Team and the role the team plays on campus.
  • Review the Behavioral Intervention Team procedures and practices; assessing team effectiveness and compliance with University policy.
