The Behavioral Intervention Team is made up of staff from multiple offices with the mission of responding to students in crisis, distress or disruptive to university operations. Commonly called a Threat Assessment Team, this group works to make sure students are safe and cared for as needed. The team meets as needed to respond to developing situations.

The inter-disciplinary approach allows for situations to be reviewed from several angles and will seek additional assistance from family members and relevant faculty/staff as the situation requires. In each case the team attempts to gather information about a student, recommend a course of action, and decide who is the best person to reach out to that student. 

The membership includes:
Tony Decker - Chief of University Police
Gail Sims-Aubert - ADA Coordinator and Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
Erin Van Daalwyk - Dean of Students
Mark Olkowski - Associate Dean of Students & Chair
Kelly Thacker - Executive Director of Housing & Residential Education
