The Behavioral Concerns Team (BCT) is an inter-departmental student behavioral response team for community intervention, mediation and risk management.  The team's goal is to consider the best interest of each student it reviews, as well as the entire campus community.  The BCT meets regularly to review university policy and procedures, consider reported or observed student behaviors, assess threat, and develop interventions to help connect students with the necessary resources and support. 
To report a behavioral concern, please use the BCT  reporting form . If you have any questions for the BCT, please email your questions to or call 708-524-6824 .

**The BCT reserves the right to invite additional individuals to join a behavioral assessment at any time.  

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.

Why a BCT?


If   you witness any concerning behaviors (i.e. pattern of erratic or distributive behavior, drug and/or alcohol abuse, threat to personal safety, disturbing 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 .
How do I report?
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 IMMEDIATELY . 


Will I be contacted if I submit a concern?


 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.
