Student Intervention Team

Are you concerned about someone in your class, but don't know what to do about it?

Are you aware of a student who is making poor decisions with alcohol or other substances?

The Student Intervention Team (SIT) was formed to address reports of troubling (inappropriate, disruptive, or harmful) student behavior in order to recommend proactive and non-punitive approaches aimed at helping students achieve success.

The Team represents a cross section of campus professionals who can address a broad range of student needs. The team includes representatives from:

  • Athletics
  • Counseling and Psychological Services
  • Department of Public Safety
  • Disability Resource Center
  • Faculty Senate
  • Housing
  • Legal Affairs
  • Ombudsman
  • Student Conduct and Community Standards
  • University Health Services

One unique aspect of the SIT is that it serves as a central place to report behaviors of concern. Any person who is concerned with a student's behavior can make a referral through our online Care Report. The SIT follows a review process to address the Care Report at regularly scheduled meetings or, if necessary, at special meetings. The resolution of an expression of concern is always governed by a course of action that balances the best interest of the student with those of the University community.
