Behavioral Recommendation Team
Purpose and Functions: The purpose of the Behavioral Recommendation Team (BRT) is to provide support and behavioral response to students, faculty and staff displaying varying levels of concerning behaviors indicative of a non-emergency mental health crisis. The function of the BRT is to review reported cases and coordinate internal and external resources to develop an action plan for the student, faculty or staff. Additionally, the BRT will monitor the progress of the student, faculty or staff throughout the action plan, including regular meetings with the Student Conduct Officer, as needed. The BRT is not intended to resolve workplace disputes or classroom situations which do not present a threat of imminent harm to faculty, staff or students and which may be resolved by normal supervisory controls or use of voluntary dispute resolution mechanisms. The function of the committee is to recommend policies and procedures as necessary and proper to accomplish its purpose and to make recommendations to the appropriate resource departments on campus about action to be taken in specific cases to improve the behavioral outcome of the faculty, staff or student.
