Students of Concern
USF cares about our students both inside and outside of the classroom. The Office of the Dean of Students is committed to the wellness and development of all USF students. We take a holistic approach, working with students to address all areas of their lives.
The Red Folder: Reporting Concerning Student Behavior
The Red Folder details when and how to contact the appropriate departments to file a report about concerning student behavior. Learn more about the Red Folder or make a report.
The Crisis Management and Behavioral Intervention Team
The Office of the Dean of Students is responsible for managing all crisis situations that involve USF students, including those reported through USF's Red Folder. The primary group charged with responding to such events is the Crisis Management and Behavioral Intervention Team (CMBIT). CMBIT is composed of professional staff from the Office of the Dean of Students, Counseling and Psychological Services, Student Disability Services, Student Housing and Residential Education, the Office of Student Conduct, the Department of Public Safety, International Student and Scholars Services, and the Center for Academic and Student Achievement.
The purpose of CMBIT is to proactively identify, assess, and offer a coordinated institutional response to community members (and non-members) who pose a risk 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.
