Students in Crisis
Behavior Assessment and Intervention Team
The Behavior Assessment and Intervention Team reviews behavioral incidents and ensures a systematic response to students whose behavior may be disruptive or harmful to themselves or the UT Dallas community and to assist in protecting the health, safety, and welfare of students and other members of the UT Dallas community.
Visit the Judicial Affairs BAIT page for more information.
If you feel that a student is in crisis, you can call the Counseling Center or have the student call from your office. Tell the Counseling Center secretary that this is an "emergency" and she will connect you with a counselor immediately. If appropriate, the student will be scheduled for a crisis appointment that day.
The campus or UT Dallas police can provide assistance if a student is acting strangely or violently. The officers have experience working with students in crisis and can provide options for further assistance. They will contact Counseling Center personnel, if needed. The police number is 911 on campus or 972-883-2222 if calling from off campus.
There are more options listed on the Emergency Services page.
