Colleges and universities around the country have been concerned about suicides, campus shootings, and students who exhibit inappropriate or unusual behaviors that might present a danger or threat to them or their campus communities. Across CUNY, we share this concern and many of our campuses have established Student Behavioral Intervention Teams (SBITs) to address this concern.
The purpose of Behavioral Intervention Teams (BITs) is to formalize a method for each CUNY campus to (1) foster a culture of Caring for students whose behavior might present a risk or threat to themselves or the campus community; (2) facilitate the early recognition of inappropriate or unusual student behavior or patterns of behavior; (3) coordinate campus support and assistance to address inappropriate or unusual behavior.
BIT teams are charged to:
