The primary purpose of the Behavior Intervention Team (BIT) is to promote the safety and well-being of the UA community. The BIT utilizes standardized procedures and best practices in an effort to provide early intervention and support in an attempt to prevent a behavioral concern regarding a student from rising to a dangerous situation. The primary role of the team is to provide support and resources to students and to nominally address threat, using current research and data driven measures of risk.

Members of the BIT will include a representative from the office of the Dean of Students, representation from the Counseling Center, the Office of Student Conduct, Housing and Residential Communities, Academic Affairs, Human Resources, the Title IX Office, the Office of Threat Assessment, the Office of Counsel, and the University Police.
