The Behavioral Concern Team (BCT) is an interdepartmental team that meets weekly to review, assess and respond to student cases regarding behavior that is concerning, disruptive or dangerous to themselves, members of the University community, or the community.  The BCT strives for early identification with a focus that is preventative and educational in nature.  The goal of the team is to consider the best interest of the student and the campus community.

The BCT will:

Educate and empower the campus community to recognize and report concerning behaviors;

Gather information to assess situations involving students who display concerning or disruptive behaviors;

Determine appropriate intervention and support strategies;

Refer students to appropriate campus or community resources; and

Monitor ongoing behavior of students that have displayed disruptive or dangerous behavior.

 
IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY, AT ANY TIME, CONTACT CAMPUS SAFETY IMMEDIATELY AT 708-524-5999 OR DIAL 911.
 
To report a behavioral concern, please use the BCT  reporting form . If you have any questions for the BCT, please call 708-524-6822. 
The Behavioral Concerns Team core membership is made up of representatives from the Dean of Students Office, Wellness Center, Student Life, University Ministry, Campus Safety, Risk Management, and Student Success and Engagement.
