Behavioral Intervention Team
The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) provides a coordinated process for identifying and responding to students who may be at risk of harming themselves or others, or who may reasonably pose a threat to the safety and well-being of the campus community.
Share a concern with BIT
Concerns can be shared via phone or through the online reporting form: Online Reporting Form

- Contact the reporter to learn more about the concern
- Identify and review information regarding the student of concern
- Collect available information
- Refer the student to appropriate resources for support
- Talk with the student of concern as appropriate
- Develop specific intervention/prevention strategies
- Facilitate meetings with FIU faculty and/or staff regarding the situation, as needed
- Follow up with reporter and student after the concern is first addressed
