 Supportive Intervention Team (SIT)



SIT conducts behavioral threat assessments for persons who might pose a safety risk to themselves or others. SIT is a collaboration among key College departments and engages the College's resources to:          

  • Investigate concerning behavior and assess the level of threat
  • Develop and implement an intervention plan for the safety of all
  • Identify sources of support for the person of concern
  • Provide ongoing support and monitoring

Reporting a Student or Employee of Concern

In an emergency:  CONTACT SECURITY IMMEDIATELY by pressing the button on the red Code Blue towers located throughout the campus parking lots or by calling (773) 602-5148. Threats toward others and suicidal threats and/or gestures always constitute an emergency.
In a non-emergency:  Notify SIT using the online Person of Concern Report Form. Submit the form as soon as possible but no later than 24 hours after learning of the concerning situation. DO NOT USE THIS FORM TO REPORT AN EMERGENCY.

To Whom Do I Report My Concerns?

Become informed about these categories of behavior to know when to report to SIT and to determine the priority order for reporting/referring a person of concern to other College departments:          

Distressed:  The behavior causes concern solely for the student’s well-being.               

Disturbed: The behavior may be highly inappropriate, irrational, or delusional and makes others uncomfortable.                

Disruptive: The behavior interrupts the classroom or work environment and represents an escalation of distress and/or inner disturbance.               

Dangerous:  The behavior threatens the safety and well-being of others.           
Keep in mind that the 4 Ds merely provide guidelines for where to go with your concerns, and many situations will not cleanly fit into a distinct category. If you need further guidance, contact the SIT Chair, the Dean of Student Services, the HR Director, or the Wellness Center Manager.
