Green River Community College's Behavioral Interventions Team's mission is to provide a safe environment for the campus community through collaboration, information collection, risk assessment and intervention.
What is BIT?
BIT is a multidisciplinary team that meets on a regular basis to review and respond to reports of student behavior that may pose a threat of self-harm or a threat to the community.
How BIT Works
Anyone concerned about specific student behavior that has the potential for possible threat to self or others should complete a Red Flag, or contact Campus Safety 253-833-9111 ext. 3350.
Members of the BIT Team review the submissions in a timely manner and determine appropriate action , on-campus or off-campus.
Confidentiality of reports and processes are maintained as needed.

The difference between the Behavioral Intervention Team and other places to report student behavior
Contact the team for:
- issues that can't be easily defined as a student conduct violation, which are reported to the Student Conduct Officer; or
- an emergency situation, which should be reported to the Auburn Police Department; or
- a perceived or present threat or imminent danger, which should be reported to Campus Security.
The overarching goal of the Behavioral Intervention Team is to operate prior to a student issue becoming a conduct issue or emergency situation. If you have a concern about a student's behavior, you may want to contact the Counseling and Health Services Team. Note that counseling requires the student's participation. However, the team reviews the situation and determines which strategies to use and which college resources will be used to address the behavior.
