Behavioral Assessment Team

It is EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY to report observed student behavior that gives cause for concern. CGCC is committed to the health and safety of its faculty, staff and students and to maintaining a safe environment in which they may work and learn. Therefore, any student behavior that causes concern on campus or in the classroom should be reported to the Behavioral Assessment Team (BAT) by completing the BAT Referral Form (linked below). 

If this is an EMERGENCY, call 9-1-1.

Purpose

The Behavioral Assessment Team (BAT) is dedicated to insuring a safe and productive college environment; through a proactive behavioral intervention assessment process, that matches the cultural, compliance and problem-solving challenges the college encounters with its diverse population.

The BAT functions with a focus first on safety and then on early intervention which will help to prevent an individual's behavior from escalating and interfering with the well-being of the campus community. The BAT works in a proactive manner to assist students, faculty and staff and will:

  • maintain confidentiality and handle all matters discreetly.
  • provide consultation and support to faculty and staff
  • connect students with needed resources
  • recommend interventions
  • monitor and review ongoing behavior of citizens who have displayed disruptive or concerning behaviors

What to Report to the BAT

In general, any behavior that disrupts the learning environment of the college or causes concern:

  • Distressed or disturbed behavior
  • Unusual occurances
  • Anything that makes you feel uncomfortable; or something doesn't seem right

How to Report Concerns to the BAT

Report all incidents and concerns that you have regarding an individuals behavior by submitting the BAT Referral Form. Please include as much detail as possible about the behavior/incident. Use your judgement as to what is reportable, erring on the side of over-reporting if in doubt.
