Based on timely review, BIT makes referrals to appropriate resources and recommends appropriate actions to the Senior Vice-Provost for Student Life/Dean of Students (SVPSL/DOS). For additional information, please refer to the Student, Rights, Rules and Reponsibilities.
Behaviors that the BIT will respond to include
Explicit threats, gestures or acts of violence directed at self or others
Intent and/or plans to perform a violent act
Unprovoked anger or hostility
Apparent disorientation or breaks from reality
Deterioration in quality of work and/or appearance
In cases of imminent threat, contact UNH Police (911) immediately.
In all other cases, contact your College Associate Dean if you see one or more of these behaviors or any other behaviors that cause concern. They will make referrals to appropriate resources and consult with the Dean of Students when needed. For more information, please contact the Dean of Students' Office at 603-862-2053.
