If a verbal warning would reasonably address the issue or behavior, then this approach could be effective in addressing the situation. If the verbal warning does not remedy the situation then additional steps should be followed. (See the Resources for Faculty and Staff)
Upon receipt of the referral, the BIT will:
Contact the referring individual (when possible) to gather information to assist in developing a response.
Gather additional information regarding the student’s situation from other instructors or campus staff who have been in contact with the student.
Depending on the situation, contact Campus Police for additional information.
Meet to review information and recommend a response. Typical responses can include contacting the student to arrange a meeting with a BIT member or other designated staff who is familiar with the student to provide support. The goal of these meetings is to assist the student in resolving challenges, identifying resources, and resolving the issue as quickly as possible.
Refer the student to the Assistant Provost for Student Affairs to be addressed using the disciplinary process as outlined in the Student Code of Conduct.
Based on the behavior displayed by the student and the assessment by the BIT, the team may make any of the following recommendations for intervention:
Referral to college and/or community resources
Referral to the College disciplinary process as described in the Student Code of Conduct
It should be noted, that in following FERPA guidelines, specific information related to the issue and/or resolution may not be shared with individuals outside the BIT. The individual who submitted the Behavior Incident Report will be notified that the issue has been addressed and/or resolved.
