What is the CARE/BIT?

The focus of APSU’s CARE/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. Use the CARE/BIT form to refer a  member of the campus community to the team.

APSU is committed to educating our campus community about Sexual Misconduct. There are several opportunities to learn more about our campus policy as well as learn how to report, who to report to, and what the University is required to do once we have knowledge that something occurred. These events are open to the entire campus community.
