Responding to Concerns After Hours

Difficult to Find BITs Online

While printed materials are important, many concerns arise after normal business hours when faculty and staff may not have ready access to their folders. Currently, it can be very difficult for someone to find a website solely dedicated to students of concern.

At most institutions, information about signs of distress, resources, and the BIT is distributed across several different websites, including counseling services, student conduct, and campus safety. The lack of a central online location for information causes people to delay reporting concerns or to give up altogether.
