N. Safety and Security

The safety and security of students residing in all University Housing Facilities is of vital concern to the Office of Residential Life/Learning Communities. It is important to realize that as a member of the University Housing Facility community each individual is responsible for ones’ own personal safety. However, the decisions that individuals make may effect the safety and security of others in that community. If a student’s actions violate University Policy and/or potentially jeopardize the security of a University Housing Facility, that student may be removed from the University Housing Facility.

What is the SBCT? The SBCT was convened in October 2007, and charged by Dr. Kathryn Wilson, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs, to create a mechanism for communicating information regarding students exhibiting behaviors that are of concern to faculty, staff and other students. The team meets weekly and consists of professional staff from Academic Affairs, the Counseling Center, Residential Life/Learning Communities, Student Conduct, University Police and the Vice President’s Office.

SBCT Mission:

  • To ensure a systematic response to students’ behavior that may be disruptive in the classroom or other areas of the campus.
  • To lead a collaborative effort to promote optimal health and safety of students and members of the University community.
  • To develop strategies that best utilize campus and community resources to assist students.
  • To support student success.

SBCT Purpose: This team provides a confidential means for early intervention of at-risk students through collaboration with campus departments, faculty and staff. Students exhibiting concerning behaviors relating to their personal, physical and emotional well-being should be referred to this team of professionals.

Information from faculty, staff and students is confidentially shared among the team members. The team may broaden the scope of involvement by including other faculty/staff, if appropriate. The SBCT reviews all information on the student’s behavior and background, determines an action plan and then monitors the student if necessary. Communication with involved parties is led by a SBCT member to ensure consistency.

Reporting: To report a student of concern, contact your Townhomes Coordinator/Resident Director, Townhomes Assistant/Resident Assistant or University Police (UP). To report a biased related incident, please visit:
