Behavior intervention team
UTB/TSC officials believe it is important to foster an environment that encourages students to maintain a standard of responsibility for self-care, which includes the ability to respond adequately to one's emotional, physical and educational needs. Some students who are distressed engage in behaviors that impact their own welfare and the welfare of the university community.
The presence of demonstrated distress, disruptive or dangerous student behavior can be a predictor of future harm to self or others, and the larger university community. While we acknowledge that no one can predict with any degree of confidence whether a student will eventually progress to acts that are harmful to themselves or others, there are behaviors indicative of higher risk. These behaviors may require further assessment by appropriate professionals to promote the safety of the student and university community.
