Welcome to the The Student Intervention Team
The Student Intervention Team (SIT) at The University of Mississippi exists to address student behavioral concerns which are not supportive of the faculty’s pursuit of the University’s central function and are not addressed by an existing agency of the University. Included in, but not limited to, the list of behaviors are threats, aberrant or strange behavior, violent or perceived violent behavior, repeated threats of suicide or violence against others, etc. SIT shall make recommendations to the Chancellor, Provost, and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs with regard to a student’s ability to continue at The University of Mississippi. The SIT does not preempt any other University department in performing its duties in enforcing the law or managing student situations.
In addition, it shall be the responsibility of the SIT to develop and review University policies which address such situations and behavior.
The team shall consist of a representative of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs (chair), the University Police Department (UPD), the Provost’s Office, the Registrar’s Office, the University Counseling Center, the University Attorney’s Office, and the Office of the Dean of Students. Other ad hoc members may be added as dictated by individual situations.
