Behaviors of Concern
Student of Concern/BCAT Team
Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) has established the Behavioral Consultation and
Assessment Team (BCAT) an interdisciplinary team to help identify students in distress
and/or who may pose a potential threat to campus. FGCU recognizes that students in
mental, physical, and/or psychological distress may impact their learning and/or functioning
while attending our institution.
The team has a collaborative process to assess concerning behavior based on those concerns reported to the team. Depending on the situation, additional personnel with specific areas of specialization or responsibility may be called upon to assist the team. This team will discuss support and safety interventions, which will provide the student with the greatest chance of success and our community the greatest level of protection.
