Student Conduct & Case Management
The Student Conduct process at Austin Peay State University is focused on providing students a community entrusted with personal responsibility and accountability achieved through fair and consistent investigations and resolutions of alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct. The Office is committed to providing impartial and educational processes that foster the highest standards of ethical behavior, student learning, and civic responsibility while promoting an environment that respects the rights of all students
What is BIT?
The focus of APSU’s Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is to encourage faculty, staff, and students to communicate and respond regarding students of concern. Whenever concerning students and their situations are brought to the attention of the intervention team, BIT members meet to gather data and plan for a coordinated response. The ultimate goal is to provide students of concern with assistance, to mitigate risk, or both. The BIT’s ultimate goal is to help keep the APSU community healthy and safe through early, appropriate intervention and to promote a safe environment focused on student learning and success. The campus community will be educated on an ongoing basis regarding the team and its operations and how to respond to students of concern. To report a student of concern, click here.
