The Behavioural Intervention Team
Wilfrid Laurier University, Brantford Campus

The Behavioural Intervention Team (BIT) provides early caring prevention and intervention for students whose behaviour is concerning, disruptive, or threatening. Our goal is to reduce risk of harm for the student themselves and to the Laurier campus community. This is a multi-disciplinary team that works in a circle of care model. It is comprised of professionals from the Office of the Dean of Students, Special Constables Service, Wellness Centre, Residence Services, Academic Advising, and Accessible Learning.

BIT provides consultation and support to faculty, staff, and students in order to assist students who exhibit disruptive behaviours so that they may, with a plan of support and risk management in place, continue to pursue their academic endeavors. Not all students referred to BIT require an ongoing support plan. All students referred are offered resources.

When to Contact BIT

· If    If you receive or observe threatening or other concerning behaviour (email, verbal, written, etc…);

· If    If you observe or are the target of violence;

· If    If you feel uncertain about an individual’s behaviour on campus at any time;

· If    If you think a student may require a complex support plan to be successful.

If you are unsure, contact a BIT member to discuss your concern.
