The Northeastern Junior College Behavioral Intervention Team is a trained group of caring NJC faculty and staff professionals who meet regularly to support our students via an established protocol. The team tracks “red flags” over time, detecting patterns, trends, and disturbances in individual or group behavior. The team receives reports of disruptive, problematic or concerning behavior or misconduct (from faculty & staff members, students, community members, friends, etc.), conducts an investigation, performs a threat assessment, and determines the best mechanisms for support, intervention, warning/notification and response. The team then activates the resources of the college and/or the community and coordinates follow-up. BIT is a specific model that has no parallel.
The NJC BIT is made up of the following campus personnel:

Steve Smith  steven.smith@njc.edu
Dean of Students
Scott Thompson scott.thompson@njc.edu
Liberal Arts Division Chair & Psychology Instructor

Misti Lauer  misti.lauer@njc.edu
Director of Academic Support Services

Cindy Carey  cindy.carey@njc.edu

David McNabb  david.mcnabb@njc.edu
