Behavioral Intervention Team
The Leeward CC Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is a multi-disciplinary team that includes representatives from Student Services, Mental Health Services, Human Resources, the Waianae Moku Administration, Campus Security, Title IX and Academic Counseling. Our mission is to promote a safe and effective learning and working environment by implementing best practice behavioral management and threat assessment techniques.

The BIT can provide support, resources, and assistance to individuals of concern and to those who are affected by concerning behavior. Some examples of concerning behavior are:
- Self-injurious actions or suicidal thoughts/actions
- Disruptive behavior in class, online, or other areas of the campus community
- Threatening, bullying, stalking, or other forms of harassment (in-person or online)
- Social withdrawal or isolation
