We are a multidisciplinary team of Foothill College professionals who have been assembled for the purposes of reviewing potentially disruptive or dangerous student behavior.

The Behavior Intervention Team (BIT) is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of the Foothill College campus community. We do this through identification, assessment and management of reported behaviors of concern.
The goal of BIT is to cultivate and support an environment that maximizes safety for students, faculty and staff.
How We Work
By soliciting information from you as members of the Foothill College community, we hope to help students, faculty and staff before they find themselves in crisis.
Your referral to BIT will initiate a series of steps that will allow the team to review, assess and assign appropriate resources to assist the individual while simultaneously reducing risk to the college community.
