Behavioral Intervention Team

The MCC Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is a multi-disciplinary group of MCC staff members focused on prevention and intervention of issues related to mental and physical health, safety, and the overall well-being of the campus community. The mission is to promote campus safety and success by early intervention of students demonstrating behaviors that may be early warning signs of possible disruptive or violent behavior and intervene at the earliest possible point.

*If there is an immediate threat to you or others, contact Campus Police or 911 immediately.

  • Receive reports of disruptive/concerning student behavior
  • Review disruptive/concerning behavior; build appropriate intervention plan
  • Work with the student to address concerning behavior
  • Make recommendations and referrals to on campus/off campus resources; if needed
  • Educate the MCC community about the behavior Intervention Team

  • Anyone concerned about a specific student behavior that could be deemed disruptive or a possible threat to self or others should complete the Behavioral Intervention Team Referral Form located at the bottom of this page.

  • BIT committee reviews all reports and determines appropriate action in a timely manner

Confidentiality is a high priority and the committee will balance an individual’s right to privacy with the college’s duty to respond to individuals experiencing at-risk behavior.

The primary goal for the BIT is to connect individuals with resources and support needed to be productive successful members of the MCC college community.  

*If there is an immediate threat to you or others, contact Campus Police or 911 immediately.
