Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)

What is the Behavior Intervention Team (BIT) Program and Concerning Behaviors?

Atlanta Technical College has established the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) to assist in addressing situations where students, faculty, or staff are displaying behaviors that are disruptive, threatening, or concerning in nature that potentially impede their own or others’ ability to function successfully or safely. This team will also focus on the wellness concerns for those who may be in violation of institutional rules or state and federal law. The BIT is dedicated to a proactive and planned approach to resolving identified issues and/or threats. It is the responsibility of faculty, staff, and students to immediately report any situation that could result in harm to anyone in the college community.
