Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)

About Us

If you are a concerned staff member, family member or fellow student, please click here to make a referral. In the case of an emergency please call 911.

Fresno State is concerned about the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. We are committed to providing an environment where individuals are free to learn, teach, and work uninhibited by threats of intimidation or harm. To this end, the University has enhanced the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT). BIT is responsible for assessing reports of troubling behavior on the part of students, faculty, or staff, and implementing interventions that are in the best interest of the university and the individual. By collaborating as a team, we strive to effectively balance the rights of individuals with the security of groups.

BIT is comprised of three sub-groups/teams of members from across the university whose purpose is to support students, faculty, and staff who may have a concern about another member of the Fresno State community. These teams serve as a resource to faculty, staff, administration and students providing assistance with intervention plans, resources, training and education.
