Behavioral Intervention Team

The University of Richmond's BIT meets bi-weekly during the fall and spring terms and on and “as needed” basis during breaks and summer terms. It is a multi-disciplinary group (members listed below) whose purpose is to support the University of Richmond community via an established protocol.

The BIT receives information of concerning behavior or misconduct from a variety of sources. The BIT shall forward information to the University Threat Assessment Team if there is an immediate threat or harm as a result of the information received. The BIT conducts an assessment, and determines the best mechanisms for support, intervention, and response. The team then deploys its resources, and the resources of the University of Richmond, and coordinates follow up.
