Behavioral Intervention Team

Proactively promoting
a safe working, learning and living campus community.

The goal of the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is to aid in developing support plans to encourage student health, well-being and academic success by an active process of threat assessment and behavioral intervention.


Are you concerned about a student's physical or mental health?  Has a student disrupted your class or caused you to worry about future actions?  Please report a situation, observation or instinct that tells you to be concerned about a student's safety and/or the safety of the campus community.

If you have concerns about a fellow classmate, report the incident to the appropriate person on your campus.  See the list of campus contacts below.  In the event of an emergency, call 911. If you are at the Sweetwater campus, call the TSTC Sweetwater Police Department at 325.235.7400.
