The Behavioral Concerns Team (BCT) at NEIU is an interdisciplinary team developed to respond to concerns about disturbing or distressing behavior on campus. The overall goal of the BCT is to enhance campus safety and promote student success by providing a centralized listening and response function regarding problematic behavior. We encourage all members of the University community to respond to concerns as they emerge, using a proactive and prevention-minded approach to keep situations from escalating.
