The QC Behavioral Intervention Team is a group of trained and dedicated professionals whose mission is to:
  • Balance the individual needs of the student, faculty or staff member and those of the greater campus community
  • Provide a structured, positive method for addressing behaviors of concern that affect the college community
  • Manage each case individually
  • Initiate appropriate intervention
  • Formalize a protocol of instructions for communication, coordination, and intervention
  • Centralize collection and assessment of red flags raised by a community member’s behavior and connect the dots of disparate problematic actions involving that individual
  • Coordinate follow-up to ensure that services, support, and resources are deployed effectively

Behavioral Intervention Team members will keep this information confidential as possible; however, please be aware that our responsibility to maintain confidentiality of people and incidents must be balanced with the need to protect the individual and the group.  Thank you for your submission.

 Frequently Asked Questions

  • The QC Behavior Intervention Team (QC BIT) is a collaborative committee of QC professionals that meets regularly to discuss the behavior of individuals about whom reports are received. The QC BIT then determines if any intervention is needed, and monitors the intervention.
  • Faculty, staff, and friends are often among the first to notice when another member of the QC community is overly stressed or behaving in a dangerous or disruptive manner. Disruption of academic progress, personal relationships, and daily behavior may be signs that a person is in distress. In order to maintain safety and order on campus, the QC BIT identifies, responds, and ensures appropriate intervention when individual behavior causes concern to other members of the campus community.
  • Anything that worries you (i.e. erratic or distributive behavior, drug and/or alcohol abuse, disturbing writings, etc.) might prompt you to make a report. Contact a member of the QC BIT to discuss the best course of action if you are not sure what to do or if a report to the BIT is warranted.
  • To report a concern to the QC BIT, please complete the form on the left. The form will require a narrative of the behavior of concern you have witnessed. The QC BIT members can be contacted personally if you wish to discuss your concern prior to submitting a report to the QC BIT.
  • The QC BIT may contact you if additional information is needed.
  • Once the QC BIT receives a report the team will discuss the reported concern. The QC BIT then creates a plan to monitor and/or intervene with the person of concern, and designates a contact person to implement the plan. At each QC BIT meeting, updates are given about each case.
  • If something happens during non-business hours submit your concern via the online form on the left or email a QC BIT member.
