Student Behavioral Consultant Team: Who We Are and What We Do!
The Student Behavioral Consultant Team (SBCT) is a multidisciplinary team of college employees that meet weekly to review and address student behavioral concerns referred to the team.
The Student Behavioral Consultant Team (SBCT) provides consultation and support to faculty and staff who are addressing and responding to students’ behaviors that may be of concern. This multidisciplinary team is comprised of representatives from Academic Affairs, Hazen Center for Integrated Care (Student Health and Counseling Center), Residential Life/Learning Communities, Student Conduct, University Police, Student Accessibility Services, and the Enrollment Management and Student Affairs Vice President’s Office.
SBCT meets weekly to facilitate communication of information regarding students of concern and address instances of students’ behaviors which have raised concerns among faculty, staff, and/or students at the college. This team, acting as consultants, facilitates the coordination of efforts to respond to students’ needs by providing resources based on the information gathered about the student’s behavior. SBCT is actively engaged in the early assessment of the reported concern and works closely with the reporting party to determine the best option for responding to the concern.
The purpose of this team is to provide a confidential means for early intervention of students of concern through collaboration with campus departments, faculty, staff, and administrators. Students exhibiting behaviors that are of concern in relation to their personal, physical, and emotional well-being may be referred to this team of professionals. Information from faculty, staff, administrators, and students is confidentially shared among the team members.
Faculty and staff may refer a student by completing an online referral form on the SBCT Webpage (Link is provided below).
The online SBCT referral is delivered to Dr. Karen Logsdon, SBCT Chair & Case Manager, Assistant to the VP, EMSA. Dr. Logsdon may contact the faculty/staff member that referred the student to seek further information and also facilitate ongoing communication with the faculty/staff member.
SBCT is guided by the standards of practice established by the National Behavioral Intervention Team Association (NaBITA). For more information about SBCT membership, referral procedures and faculty and staff resources refer to the SBCT webpage (Link provided below).
SBCT hosts workshops through the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) and also by request will present remotely for departmental/divisional meetings at the college. Outreach to the campus community is an important role for this team and since the team was formed in 2007, team members have presented on the management of disruptive students, de-escalation strategies in and out of the classroom, and emergencies in the classroom, to name a few.
