Creating a Safe Campus
Pellissippi State Community College is committed to creating and maintaining a safe campus environment in which students can focus on their academic pursuits. Creating and maintaining a safe campus is everyone’s responsibility. We encourage all students, faculty, and staff to report behaviors and situations that are out of the ordinary, unsettling or dangerous. Further, students and employees can help us maintain a safe environment by engaging in responsible and respectful behavior.
See Something, Say Something
Pellissippi State knows that it takes everyone playing their part to create a safe campus for all students, faculty, staff and visitors. If you see something that troubles you, say something. If you see something out of the ordinary, say something. If you feel uncomfortable about something that someone said to you or someone else, say something. If you witness something that you know isn’t quite right, say something.
We want you to be an active bystander when you see something. Your individual choices and actions can make a difference. We want each person playing their part; stepping forward; and saying something in the moment, or afterwards, by reporting it to Security. To do so, send a text to 67283 and begin your message with “PSCCTIPS” or use the online Anonymous Tip form.
Behavioral Intervention Team
The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is a resource that works to ensure our campus community is a safe place for teaching and learning to occur. The BIT is not a disciplinary board, but rather the central point of contact for reports of concerning behavior for the campus community to coordinate intervention services.
The team analyzes and, when necessary, responds to reports of problematic or concerning behavior to determine the best mechanism for support, intervention, warning/notification and response. The team also works across all campuses to identify patterns of behavior that may have an impact on the campus community.
You may contact the BIT and submit a report using the following methods:
