Student Behavioral Intervention Team
What We Do
Miramar College's Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is designed to assist faculty, staff, and students when confronted with situations in which a student is displaying behavior of a non-threatening mental health concern. The Team evaluates each referral efficiently and individually to provide proper follow up resources to the student in question and/or consultation with campus resources.
The BIT process does not handle faculty classroom management, disciplinary processes, and/or public safety responses to incidents.
If you have a life threatening emergency dial 9-911 from any district phone or 911 from a pay or cell phone first. Then notify College Police dispatch at (619) 388-6405. The TTY number is (619) 388-6419.
What to Report
In general, any behavior that raises concern for a student's well-being should be reported. General examples include but are not limited to: depressed or withdrawn affect, significant anxiety or stress, concerning pictures or statements (of a non-threatening nature) written within homework/quizzes, concerning comments regarding their personal life, classmate(s) reporting a concern about a student's behavior to you. Additional examples are provided on the Frequently Asked Questions page. Behaviors of concern might be observed in a number of different locations such as in a classroom, service location or office.
