The Student Behavior Consultation Team (SBCT) coordinates the resources of RIT to review and address inappropriate, disruptive, and/or harmful student behavior in order to recommend collaborative and purposeful (non-punitive) interventions aimed at helping students achieve success. In addition, the SBCT assists faculty and staff in addressing instances of student behavior which may be inappropriate, harmful, or disruptive for the RIT living and learning community.
Other responsibilities of SBCT include making recommendations to the Senior Vice President for Student Affairs regarding students who may need to leave RIT via the RIT Leave of Absence Policy, outreaching to students during student-related crises, and providing educational programming to faculty, staff and students at RIT regarding on campus resources and potential off campus referrals.
Any member of the RIT community (faculty, staff or students) can use the SBCT if there are concerns about a student.
When students are referred to SBCT, possible results may include (but are not limited to):
Residence Life Outreach
Referral to the RIT Counseling Center
Referral to RIT Case Manager
Outreach meeting with the Chair of SBCT
SBCT-supported Behavioral Agreement
Referral to the Center for Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution
