Student Affairs

Tennessee Tech University is concerned about the care, welfare, and safety of all students, faculty, and staff on its campus. It is part of the University's commitment to promote personal growth and a healthy society to prepare students for success. To support this commitment, the University must provide an environment free and uninhibited by threats of intimidation and harm.

The purpose of the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is to address student behavioral concerns that are inconsistent with the University's mission. The members of this team act with a common purpose: to address critical student behavioral or mental health concerns through review of situations/incidents, information gathering and sharing, and providing recommendations to ensure the safety and educational success of the student. The team consists of the Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs, Dean of Students, Director of Residential Life, Director of Counseling Center, and the Director of University Police. The BIT does not replace other classroom management or disciplinary processes nor does it address student behaviors that require immediate health, police, or mental health attention.

The success of this process hinges on the University's commitment to reporting concerns.

If you have further questions or have comments regarding the Behavioral Intervention Team, please contact the Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs at (931) 372-3237 or EdBoucher@tntech.edu.
