Student Intervention Team

Mission and Purpose of the Student Intervention Team (SIT)

Mission. The mission of the University of New Brunswick’s Student Intervention Team is to promote and support: 1) our student’s health, well-being, and successful experiences by coordinating information and developing support plans for students displaying behaviours of concern, and 2) the health and safety of the campus community.

Purpose. The purpose of the Student Intervention Team is to serve as the coordinating hub of a network of existing resources, focused on prevention and intervention in community situations involving members experiencing distress or engaging in harmful or disruptive behaviors. The Team will develop intervention and support strategies and provide case coordination and management.

How Does a Referral to the Student Intervention Team (SIT) Work?

If a student, staff, or faculty member is concerned for the well-being of a UNB student, they can submit their concern to the Student Intervention Team (SIT). A representative from SIT (usually the Student Life Coordinator) will contact the student and ask them to come in to meet with them. During this meeting, the student will have an opportunity to share any concerns they have and offer their thoughts on ways the SIT may be of assistance to them. If needed or helpful, the student and the SIT representative will work together to build a student support plan. This is a plan that will assist the student in identifying resources that may be helpful for them, or may recommend ways the student could work towards positive outcomes following a negative behavioural incident. 

In many cases a student may only need to meet with a SIT representative once. However, in other cases, a student may benefit from follow-up meetings in order to provide extended support. 

Please contact us with any questions, concerns, or comments you may have.  We look forward to hearing from you.
