Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)

The BIT is committed to identifying students who may be struggling in order to intervene with strategies that both help students succeed and help keep the Fisher community safe.

About the Behavioral Intervention Team

The BIT at St. John Fisher University reviews situations of concern that involve Fisher students. The team assesses student behavior in order to develop an appropriate response that both cares for the student and mitigates disruption to our educational and living environments. 

Fisher’s community cares for one another, and any concerns about a Fisher student may be submitted through the Cardinal Concern form below. The BIT will review the information and develop an appropriate response to the concern. A Cardinal Concern report is not for an emergency situation. In an emergency, please contact Safety and Security directly at (585) 385-8111.
