Behavior Intervention Team (BIT)
Wentworth Institute of Technology prioritizes the safety and security of our campus community. As members of that community, we each hold a responsibility to share information about our students and colleagues when we become concerned for their safety or wellbeing or the safety of others. The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) responds to each of these concerns.
