Mission Statement
The BIT is committed to improving community safety through a proactive, collaborative, coordinated, objective, and thoughtful approach to the prevention, identification, assessment, intervention and management of situations that pose, or may reasonably pose, a threat to the safety and well-being of the campus community.

Reporting Concerns To The BIT

Email: bitcore@alvincollege.edu
Website: www.alvincollege.edu/BIT

Report all incidents and concerns that you have regarding a student’s behavior to the BIT, including as much detail as possible about the behavior/incident. Use your judgment as to what is reportable, erring on the side of over-reporting if in doubt.

Reporting a student in crisis does not preclude taking additional action such as contacting your Director of Advising Services,Campus police or the Dean of Students, etc. This action should then be followed by completing the BIT Behavioral/Incident Documentation Form
