The BIT contributes to the climate of academic success at Troy University Dothan Campus. It promotes a healthy lifestyle and contributes to a safe and secure campus by:

  • Facilitating rapid assessment and effective referral of students with mental health issues and behavioral issues
  • Assisting and supporting students to optimize their performance in the academic environment
  • Reducing risk of harm to self or others
  • Contributing to a safe and productive living and learning environment for our students, faculty and staff
  • Educating and training students, faculty and staff to recognize students in need of referral

Four components of the BIT

  • A multi-disciplinary team of student services and academic professionals that addresses current student concerns and creates protocols and procedures surrounding student behavior and mental health issues
  • A quick-response team that immediately responds to campus crisis situations. The team performs threat assessments, makes recommendations and interventions in regard to issues of campus safety
  • Campus representatives who act as liaisons between the campus and local community resources
  • Provides training and education for students, faculty and staff regarding the issues of safety and mental health in our campus community
