The Behavioral Concerns Team (BCT) is a collaborative
committee of DU professionals who meets regularly to discuss the behavior of
individuals about whom reports are received. After receiving reports, the
BCT determines if any intervention is needed and monitors the intervention.
Faculty, staff, and friends are often among the first to
notice when another member of the DU community is overly stressed or is
behaving in a dangerous or disruptive manner. Disruption of academic progress,
personal relationships, and/or daily behavior may be signs that a person is in
distress. In order to maintain safety and order on campus, the BCT strives to
identify, respond, and appropriately intervene when an individual’s behavior
causes concern to other members of the university community.
you witness any concerning behaviors (i.e. pattern of erratic
or distributive behavior, drug and/or alcohol abuse, threat to personal safety,
writings, etc.), this should prompt you to make a report. In your report, please be as specific as possible when describing concerning behaviors. At
any time, feel free to contact
a member of t
he BCT to discuss the best course of
action if you are not sure what to do or if a report to the BCT is warranted
at (708) 524-6824 or via email at
The form will prompt you to provide
a narrative of the concerning behavior(s) you have witnessed.
The BCT members can be contacted personally if you wish to discuss your
concern prior to submitting a report to the team.
If you are
reporting an emergency, please notify Campus Safety & Security or dial 911
The BCT may contact you if additional information is needed
to supplement your report.
Once the BCT receives a report, the team members will
discuss the reported concern. The BCT then creates a plan to monitor
and/or intervene with the person of concern, and designates a contact person to
implement the plan. At each BCT meeting, updates are shared with the team
members about each case.
