What is the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)?

The Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) has been created to provide caring, preventive, early intervention with individuals whose behaviors are disruptive or concerning. The Behavioral Intervention Team is an interdisciplinary committee of college officials who meet biweekly and as needed.

A few of the core purposes of the BIT include these:

  • Provide consultation and support to students, faculty, staff, and administration in assisting individuals who display concerning or disruptive behaviors.
  • Serve as the central point of contact for reporting behavior that deviates from an established baseline
  • Triage reports – identifying patterns of aberrant behaviors that might suggest the need for an intervention.
  • Assess level of threat and level of risk.
  • Follow a formalized protocol of instructions for communication, coordination, and intervention.
  • Assess long-term success of interventions.
