Behavior Intervention Team (BIT)
North Dakota University System (NDUS) procedures mandate that each campus have a Behavior Intervention Team (BIT). A BIT is defined as follows:
A multi-disciplinary group whose purpose is meeting regularly to support its target audience (i.e. students, employees, faculty, and staff) via an established protocol. A BIT is designed to be engaged in the early intervention and support that prevents a behavioral concern from rising to the level of a threat or crisis.
