Our Mission

Valuable lessons have been learned from recent tragic events at other universities. Important information about students is often housed in isolated areas and isn't connected until a tragedy strikes. The BCT will give faculty, staff and students one place to report their concerns about a student's behavior. Campus Safety should always be called first if it is an emergency. The BCT serves as the centralized coordinated body for discussion and action regarding students exhibiting suicidal, self-injurious and other behaviors which might pose a threat to students and/or others in the University community.

The BCT is chaired by the Dean of Students.  Additional members of the core group include a representative  from:
