Behavioral Intervention Team - Role of the BIT

The University of Memphis is concerned about the care, welfare and safety of all of its students, faculty, and staff. It is part of the mission of the University to try to promote an environment where individuals are free to learn, teach and work unencumbered and uninhibited by threats of intimidation and harm.

The purpose of the Behavioral Intervention Team is to address student behavioral concerns that are inconsistent with the University’s mission. The members of this team act with a common purpose to address critical student behavioral or mental health concerns through review of situations/incidents, information gathering and sharing, and providing recommendations to ensure the safety and educational success of the student. The BIT does not replace other classroom management or disciplinary processes nor does it address student behaviors that require immediate health, police or mental health attention.

The success of this process hinges on the University’s commitment to reporting concerns.

Thank you for reviewing the Behavioral Intervention Team site. If you have any further questions or have comments, please contact the BIT at (901) 678-2187 or bit@memphis.edu.
