Behavioral Intervention Team

Statement of Purpose

Anne Arundel Community College is concerned about the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff and is committed to providing an environment where individuals are free to work, learn and teach, unencumbered and uninhibited by threats of intimidation and harm. To this end the college has established the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT). BIT is responsible for ensuring the college’s policies and procedures regarding proper behavior are upheld and properly administered. 

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Threat Assessment - The BIT is responsible for developing a rubric for classification of student distress in specific levels of criticality, warranting varying levels of escalation intervention and /or support. 

  • Policy Review and Recommendations - The BIT will ensure that policies provide for recognizing and assisting students in distress, and appropriate intervention when it is believed a distressed student poses a danger to him/herself or others.

  • Faculty and Staff Training - The BIT will provide training to faculty and staff on the protocols for responding to students in distress.

  • Tracking and Monitoring - The BIT is working on a campus-wide database into which real-time incident information will be submitted by all college employees, reviewed daily by the team for red flags and acted upon accordingly. Incident reports should be completed when someone observes incidents of aberrant, dangerous, or threatening behavior. Incident reports are available to the college community on the main menu of MyAACC via a link at both the top and bottom right–hand side. You must log in to MyAACC to access the incident reports.
