Crisis Management and Behavioral Intervention Team

The purpose of the Crisis Management and Behavioral Intervention Team (CMBIT) is to proactively identify, assess, and offer a coordinated institutional response to community members who pose a risk or disruption to themselves, others and/or the campus community. The CMBIT contributes to USF’s goal of keeping students on-track to graduate, as well as helping to promote a healthier and safer campus community.
