UWM has two intervention teams to address concerning behaviors. They are the Behavior Intervention Team (BIT) and the Student Support Team (SST).
Behavior Intervention Team
The Behavior Intervention Team (BIT) acts in a proactive manner to identify, assess, manage, reduce, and educate the campus community as to the risk of potentially harmful or threatening behavior.
Student Support Team
The Student Support Team (SST) helps identify students who appear to be in distress and provides supportive intervention and guidance. Contact the SST to seek help for students who experience personal or family challenges that impact the student’s ability to be successful (e.g., suicidal ideation, mental health, medical circumstances, severe hardship, loss of a loved one, other situational factors) or that significantly impacts the campus community (e.g. erratic behavior, loss of a campus community member).
Reporting concerning behaviors
Students and employees can submit a report to either of these teams.
