Miramar College's Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is designed to assist faculty, staff, and students when confronted with situations in which a student is displaying concerning behavior. The Team evaluates each referral efficiently and individually to provide proper follow up resources to the student in question and/or consultation with campus resources.
The BIT process does not replace faculty classroom management, disciplinary processes, and/or public safety responses to incidents.
If you have a life threatening emergency dial 9-911 from any district phone or 911 from a pay or cell phone first. Then notify College Police dispatch at (619) 388-6405. The TTY number is (619) 388-6419.
